Course Objectives 1. Basic understanding of earth’s climate system, physical properties of the atmosphere, and the oceans.
2. Understanding how Earth’s climate operates and natural processes influencing climate, practicing problem-solving skills, and application of scientific concepts
3. Discussion of current climate issues
Course Description Climate systems, global energy balance, radiation balance, surface energy balance, mean zonal circulation, hydrological cycle, ocean general circulation, climate sensitivity, earth system models, regional climate models and introduction to RegCM, climate change projections.
Course Outcomes 1. To able to understand complex interaction among climate system components.
2. To be able to calculate global average temperature by using the radiative balance model.
3. To be able to analyze the energy balance of a place by considering the radiative and non-radiative fluxes
4. To be able to identify the basic features of the general circulation of the atmosphere
5. To be able to explain the relationship between climate and general circulation
6. To be able to identify the general features of ocean circulation
7. To be able to understand the general principles of climate models.
8. To be able to do a basic climate simulation by using a regional climate model (RegCM3), analyze results and interpret
