Climate and Meteorology is a discipline concerned with the study of atmosphere phenomena and focusing on climate processes, precipitation, temperature, currents, and electric discharge. It also aims at forecasting these phenomena and the changes or sequence between them. The activity in this field involves the research of climatology in terms of probing, analysing, evaluating and interpreting the meteorological data with the purpose of forecasting the weather and specific climatic conditions in the different geographical areas of the world. It is also preoccupied with the development of new meteorological theories and the improvement of existing ones, with the improvement of meteorological methods, techniques and instruments.
As a meteorologist you can practice your profession in government agencies, private consulting and research services, utilities and radio and television stations. A career in meteorological research can prove to be a very exciting endeavour as it can take the practitioner in some of the most unexplored and unknown places on Earth.
EFM is a high level one-year training in fluid dynamics of natural media, including chemistry and biology coupling, complemented with numerical and experimental methods. With internationally recognized researchers in the fields of fundamental fluid mechanics closely linked to modelling and observations of natural media...
This programme provides a unique combination of training on the physical, social and policy aspects of climate change and on broader environmental policy. It provides students with a solid foundation in the physical science of climate change, climate change impacts, adaptation to and mitigation of climate change, and with a critical understanding of the policy tools that can be used to promote environmental protection.
This program will emphasize environmental policy and management theory and practice on the global scale. Environmental change, sustainable practices, disaster planning and response, and political influence will be studied, providing students with insights into the status of shared resources throughout the world.
A Graduate Certificate of Climate Adaption will provide you with the skills and knowledge to allow you to apply the principles of climate adaption across a range of different professions and assess the risks and opportunities that may arise from climate changes. On completion of this certificate, you will be able to demonstrate an in-depth understanding of global climate change as well as scientific knowledge and concepts. You will also be adept at assessing the impact humans have upon the constantly changing climate system.
The MSc in Environmental Dynamics and Climate Change course places particular emphasis on recent global and regional environmental and climatic change, the scientific basis and limitations of models and data collection techniques. It combines the international research strengths of staff within the departments of Geography and Biosciences around environmental and climate dynamics (processes and mechanisms involved in stability and change), marine and ecosystem biology, and environmental management and sustainable development.
The MSc Geographic Information and Climate Change course provides cross-disciplinary training in the scientific basis of GIS, Satellite Remote Sensing and Earth System Modelling alongside aspects of Climate Change. The course places particular emphasis on the technical aspects of GIS and Earth Observation as well as the past, present and future global and regional environmental and climatic change.
The University of Arizona Geographic Information Systems Technology (UA GIST) integrates GIScience, cutting-edge GISystems, and geospatial technology, with managment skills for use in government, corporate, non-profit and academic settings.
The M.Sc. ICSS program offers courses in all fields of climate system sciences. At present, the program allows the specialization in one of following three tracks: › physics of the climate system; › biogeochemistry of the climate system; › climate related economics and social sciences. All courses are held in English. Class size is limited to 20 students. Our research oriented study program has been accredited by ASIIN in 2010. Professional perspectives Become a climate expert! After graduation our students successfully work as researchers in the fields of natural, social and economic sciences, consultants in the public service and private business sectors, and in non-governmental organizations, or pursue a PhD.
During this two-year master's program in Energy and Climate - Physics, you learn about sustainable energy; its potential, the physics and technology behind, and how to examine and utilize these clean energy sources. . These fields strongly depend on advanced mathematical models, in e.g. fluid dynamics and heat flow, as well as numerical simulations. Alumni with these skills are highly desired in the scientific research sector and industry nationally and abroad.
The Laboratory of Hydrology and Aquatic Systems Analysis of the University of Thessaly (Department of Civil Engineering) and the Laboratoire d’ Etude des Transferts en Hydrologie et Environement of Observatoire des Sciences de l’Univers de Grenoble (OSUG) of Université Joseph Fourier – Grenoble I, jointly undertook the direction, co-ordination and organisation of a Greek-French program of postgraduate studies (MANAGEMENT OF HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL HAZARDS - HYDROHASARDS) that leads to the acquisition of: a) Master’s Degree and b) Doctoral Diploma.
The Clean and Renewable Energy Master is distinguished by the “label Master ParisTech” which selects Master programmes taught by ParisTech Grandes Ecoles and their academic partners that respond to criteria of high quality educational and scientific objectives and relevant employability.
