(NB: COURSE STARTS IN SPRING 2016)
Weather forecasts in the Arctic are often unreliable, and the global climate models show a large uncertainty in scenarios.
One of the reasons is that processes in the Arctic atmospheric boundary layer often are poorly implemented in these kinds of models. The course covers themes relevant for the Arctic atmospheric boundary layer such as: theory of the boundary layer with special emphasis on the stable boundary layer; turbulence; local climate processes; air-ice-sea interaction; topographically induced phenomena; measuring techniques and data analysis; numerical modelling.
