Mesoscale Meteorology, 7.5 credits

About the course

This course covers theories for atmospheric dynamics on the mesoscale, i.e. phenomena on scales smaller than the synoptic scale weather systems but larger than turbulence. The content is:

- discussion of scales

- semigeostrophy and frontogenesis

- inertia stability and slantwise convection

- internal gravity waves and inertial oscillations - orograpically modified flow

- thermally induced flow

- organized convection
