Focus on atmospheric physics

Seminar on Atmospheric Physics (Koppmann / Volk)

PHYMAPSS1 (Seminar, 2 hours per week):

  • Wed. 11-12:30 D.07.01, Hybridsemester

Rhythm: Meeting in presence, weekly

First appointment: April 06th, 2022

Seminar plan

Comment: The aim of the seminar is to train research, preparation and the presentation of current research topics. Learning objectives are the content preparation of presentations, structuring of presentations, presentation techniques, the use of media, design of slides, time management, reaction to questions, etc. On the one hand topics from the current research (student participants), on the other hand topics of the ongoing master and doctoral theses (master students and doctoral students) are treated. Also final lectures within the framework of bachelor and master theses take place within the framework of the seminar.

Atmospheric physics: Methodological knowledge and presentation of results (Koppmann / Volk)

PHYMAPMLS1 (Seminar, 2 hours per week):

  • Mon. 15:30-17:00 D.07.01

Comment: The seminar is a literature seminar, which is also referred to as the "Journal Club" at other universities and occurs in many variations. The objectives of this seminar are to keep the participants up to date on research, to facilitate the implementation of findings in research everyday life and to promote the ability of critical reading. There is a tremendous (still increasing) amount of literature, and this extensive offer calls for a high level of competence and effective techniques for critically handling this information. The versatility of the seminar and the broad spectrum of treated Magazines relevant to atmospheric research bring a considerable wealth of experience and knowledge to both students and members of the working group.

                                                                                                                     

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Special topics in atmospheric physics - Conceptual models of stratospheric transport (Plöger)

PHYMAPST3VU (2 SWS lecture + 2 SWS exercises):

Recommendation

The exact date can be discussed in the preliminary discussion on Fr, April 08th, 10:15 - this preliminary discussion will be online via the BigBlueButton conference room

webconf.fz-juelich.de/b/plo-nj6-cp9-nbu

Password: 673497

It will be decided later, depending on the Covid situation, whether the other lectures will be at the university or online.

It would be great if interested people send me their email address (to f.ploeger@fz-juelich.de), and I will provide links to the lecture slides and exercises.

Content

In this lecture we will deal with the topic of atmospheric modelling. We will start with an overview about different types of atmospheric models, followed by a short course on the basic structure of the atmosphere and the governing equations for atmospheric dynamics and transport. As an example for conceptual mathematical models we will first consider lower dimensional models of the stratospheric Brewer-Dobson circulation (e.g., two-dimensional transformed Eulerian Mean). Thereafter, we will discuss different modelling techniques (e.g., Eulerian and Lagrangian modelling frameworks) and different numerical approaches used in atmospheric models. Here, we will consider finite difference, finite volume, spectral and finite element methods and different model grids and vertical coordinate systems used in atmospheric models. A short outline is:
- Introduction: Types of "models''
- Atmospheric structure and model equations for transport and dynamics
- Conceptual lower-dimensional mathematical models (example: stratospheric
Brewer-Dobson circulation)
- Numerical models
- Numerical approaches for atmospheric models
- Numerical methods for advection
- Statistical modelling and data analysis methods

Recommended requirement
