PH3006 - Oceanography and Meteorology
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
This course is divided equally into Meteorology and Oceanography. Topics in meteorology
include the atmospheric environment - composition, vertical structure, radiative transfer,
solar energy budget, enhanced greenhouse effect - simple global models, predictions
for the future, atmospheric thermodynamics and humidity, thermodynamic diagrams, lapse
rate and stability, surface boundary layer, turbulence balance equations, turbulent
transport equations, vertical wind profile, logarithmic wind profile, friction velocity
and roughness length, computation of vertical fluxes in the surface boundary layer.
Topics in Oceanography include: properties of seawater, stability, diffusion, waves
- to understand the theoretical concepts covered in lectures and to solve problems related
to these topics;
- to undertake experimental work and write laboratory reports.
