GEOB 300 Microscale Weather and Climate
‘Microscale Weather and Climate’ introduces you the nature of the atmosphere and processes close to the Earth’s surface on small scales, extending in space from those of a leaf up to that of a large valley. We focus on interactions between the surface, vegetation and atmosphere. We gain an understanding of and describe mass-momentum and energy exchange, turbulence, dispersion and atmospheric circulations in the context of forcing surface processes and global climate. The course introduces basic instrumentation and methods used in today’s monitoring and modeling of microscale climate and surface-atmosphere exchange.
