Name of course leader / leaders:

Dr Ewa Łupikasza, prof. dr hab. Tadeusz Niedźwiedź



Prerequisites:

Basis of physical geography GG054, meteorology and climatology GG059



Assumptions and objectives of the course:

To gather knowledge on regional differentiation of climate conditions and climatic regions and types division on the Earth. To get to know the causes of spatial variability of climate due to global and regional factors.



The form and terms of assessment of the course:

Final test



Registration for the course / additional notes:

Yes


Content:

Topics of this lecture involve problems of regional climatology. Introductory lecture: theory of systems and climate system. Climatic factors: astronomical (radiative), geographical, circulation. Review of climate classifications and their methodological bases. General characteristic of climate zones. Genesis of climate types in respect to global and regional climate drivers, extreme and average values of climate elements, climatic records and extreme events. Climate conditions of selected regions (or countries) representative for the main climatic types: A – tropical climate, BS – steppe climate, BW – desert climate, C – warm temperate climate, D – cool (boreal) temperate climate, ET – tundra climate, EF – perpetual frost climate.
