The students have an overview of the processes in the atmosphere that determine weather, climate and climate changes. They can describe and explain the basics of elementary mathematics and thus solve elementary mathematical problems in physics and atmospheric sciences.

Overview of the composition, processes and phenomena in the atmosphere, weather, climate and climate change

Lecture with lab problems, discussed in separate tutorial sessions

Multiple choice final exam. Each questions will come with 5 answers, of which 0-5 can be correct. They obtain points for correctly labeling the answers as true or false and deductions for incorrect answers.
