Atmosphere, Oceans and Climate

This course aims to provide you with a rigorous and quantitative knowledge of physical processes that generate weather systems, and an understanding of the way these weather systems combine to form climate. The course will help you develop a comprehensive understanding of atmospheric physics, fluid dynamics and the computational methods used to build numerical models of the climate system.

Entry requirements

Prior knowledge of meteorology is not necessary although some experience with computer programming will be helpful. A 1st or 2nd Class degree in physics, mathematics or a closely related subject is required (or equivalent from a university outside the UK). Admission to the Diploma may be possible with slightly lower qualifications.

Course modules

Modules include: Atmospheric physics; fluid dynamics; remote sensing; numerical modelling of atmospheres and oceans; climate change.
