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...
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.
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.
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 “Climatology-Hydrology” M.A. Studies primarily aims at training highly-qualified specialists in two different, yet inter-dependent scientific domains, capable to effectively contribute to the continuous development of scientific knowledge and to the optimal management of climatic and hydrological resources and risks both in Romania and the E.U. or worldwide.
This Course is designed to offer scientific knowledge as well as technology and methodological skills to Secondary Science teachers. Upon the completion of this course graduates will: a) have a more scientific approach to teaching Physics, Chemistry and Biology b) be able to understand and convey to students, through educational processes, classical and modern theories of Natural Sciences and their role within the unified scientific world c) have acquired requisite skills and scientific competence for using experiments to investigate and prove scientific theories and hypotheses d) have acquired special methodological training to design and carry out educational projects at school or within the wider educational community, or local community e) will have required level of competence to use information technology to design and produce electronic learning material
This provides Graduates with the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to enable them to undertake analysis of both global and Irish related climate change science, impacts and policies.
The Institut für Meereskunde at University Hamburg offers a master degree (M.Sc.) in Physical Oceanography. The research oriented 4 semester course is directed to students with B.Sc. degree in physical oceanography, meteorology, geophysics, physics or equivalent and provides profound knowledge on the physics of the ocean and its role in the climate system.
This 1-year course is designed to prepare graduates in the physical sciences and mathematics for research careers in Climate, Atmospheric or Environmental Sciences. It is ideally bridging the gap between undergraduate studies in physics, chemistry, mathematics and environmental sciences and study for a PhD.
This MSc offers advanced coverage of the physical processes governing the behaviour of volcanoes. The programme is taught by leading scientists working at the cutting edge of research into volcanoes, and will provide you with a strong background for independent research to PhD level or for a career in industry, public sector or NGOs.
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.
