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.

  • Mon. 11-12:30 D.07.01

                                                                                                                     

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

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)

PHYMAPST2 (Lecture):

Recommendation

We will have a preliminary discussion about the seminar content and dates on
Friday, 29.10, 10:00 - 11:00

This preliminary discussion, and maybe also the seminar itself, will take place as a video-conference via the BigBlueButton conference room

webconf.fz-juelich.de/b/plo-jmw-fya-2nr

Password: 182156

Interested people are invited to join the preliminary discussion. In case of further questions please contact me via email (f.ploeger@fz-juelich.de).

Content

Prior to the era of complex three-dimensional numerical models, many new insights into processes governing the dynamics and trace gas transport in the middle atmosphere have been inferred from conceptual models. Many of these theoretical concepts are still up to date, even when viewed from the perspective of modern coupled chemistry-climate models and high-resolution atmospheric measurements. In this seminar, we will review the related seminal literature elucidating the transport of long-lived trace gases in the stratosphere and underlying dynamical processes.
Papers to be discussed will include:

* Plumb and Ko (1992)
* Hall and Plumb (1994)
* Plumb (1996)
* Neu and Plumb (1999)
* Linz et al. (2016)
* Linz et al. (2017)
* Holton and Gettelman (2001)
