Name of course leader / leaders:

Dr Ewa Łupikasza



Prerequisites:

Meteorology and climatology



Assumptions and objectives of the course:

To learn relationships between climate and environment and utilize this knowledge to improve development planning



The form and terms of assessment of the course:

Final test



Registration for the course / additional notes:

yes


Content:

Introduction to the topic - definitions and terms, scales of climate, development planning, the natural environment, assessment of environment for development planning ect. Boundary layer and urban boundary layer of atmosphere. Climate differentiation due to various kinds of active layers: deserts, water reservoirs, areas covered with both snow and ice, forested areas, farmlands, orchards. The climate of heterogeneous areas – the influence of spatially differentiated surfaces on climate conditions – topographical problems. The basis of urban climate (radiation balance, urban heat island, urban modification of climate elements). Air pollution (condition favoring air pollutant dissemination within urban areas, industry impact on local climate conditions). The influence of climate on selected human activities. The methods of climate condition evaluation for different economy branches. Climatic-agricultural indices and their application for evaluation of pluvio-thermal conditions. The methods of evaluation of both relief and land use influences on local atmospheric circulation. The methods of climate evaluation for touristic and recreation. The rules of topographic maps creation.
