The study of meteorology will provide students with advanced knowledge and skills using the terms and laws of physics in atmosphere, ocean and the climate system. Students will become familiar with experimental and theoretical methods, and will be guided toward current research.
The courses will provide instruction on how to present physical context, how to critically assess scientific problems, and how to apply modern methodology in experimental and theoretical climate physics.
Mathematical methods are an indispensable tool for processing physical relations, and they are essential for the comprehension of physical context.
Bachelor curricula "Physics of the Earth System: Meteorology - Ozeanography - Geophysics" (in German) and the internationally oriented Master courses "Climate Physics: Meteorology and Physical Oceanography" (in English)
