Overview

Program description:
The goal of this program is to extend the knowledge of BSc level students, and to learn about different meteorological phenomena, their driving forces, and to gain knowledge on the state-of-the-art methodology that is used in the practice and also about climate change and its environmental consequences. Students have to learn about the multidisciplinary nature of meteorology and the possible connections with different other scientific fields and sectors.

This program is recommended to applicants who have strong background in physics, mathematics and meteorology or environmental science. Applicants should have deep motivation and ability to learn about the theory of weather forecast and climate modelling, and they should be able to apply their knowledge in the practice. Applicants should be able to understand the different spatial scales that are associated with the variety of meteorological phenomena.
