Course Description

Course Description: Defining climate, past climates, radiation and climate, climate models, Greenhouse effect. Global average models: temperature and heat balance, time dependence. Energy balance models. Convective adjustment climate models. 2-D climate models. Finite difference methods, stability and consistence analysis of methods applied two simplified atmospheric dynamics equations. Anatomy of atmospheric general circulation models. Vertical coordinates. Clouds, radiation, sland surface, planatery boundary layer, cumulus parameterizations. Regional climate modelling. Course Objectives: To explore the hierarchy of models used to investigate and understand the climate system. To explore the range of models, assess the strengths and weaknesses of each class of models and develop a sense of which model is most appropriate for answering different research questions. To teach the fundamentals of climate modeling. To teach how to run a regional climate model (RegCM) and use it in a research problem.
