Climate and Atmospheric Science
This course will prepare you in the physical sciences and mathematics for a research career in climate, atmospheric or environmental sciences. It ideally bridges the gap between undergraduate studies in physical/natural sciences and engineering, and study for a PhD. Alternatively, if you decide to leave academia, the highly transferable skills gained from this course could lead to a research role in industry or government. Gain a broad overview of physical problems in climate and atmospheric science, together with a sound physical understanding of natural processes. Alongside this, develop highly transferable skills to conduct research in these subjects with a strong emphasis on quantitative data analysis and physical and numerical modelling.
All the modules below run over both semesters 1 and 2: research skills: Introductory coursework; atmospheric fieldwork; project proposal; seminar write-ups and presentation skills; quantitative skills (computer-based project); coursework; specialist knowledge (literature survey); coursework; project; dissertation.
Your dissertation project accounts for a significant part of your assessment. You are also assessed on work you do in course, for example through field notebooks, project proposals, seminars, submission of a computer project and a literature-based survey.
