Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

- student will be able to formulate the basic concepts and relations of meteorology and climatology - student will be able to use the knowledge gained in practice to assess the weather stage in relation to air pollution and to forecasting the conditions for the dispersion of pollutants in the air - student will be able to present and articulate their knowledge and understanding in the field of meteorology and climatology

Summary

Students will be introduced to the Earth's atmosphere and heating processes in the Earth's surface and troposphere by solar radiation. They will learn about the relationship between heating of the troposphere, the horizontal pressure field changes and general atmospheric circulation. They will acquainted with the cause and course of global climatic cycles. Students become familiar with the stability of the atmosphere and its impact on the dispersion of atmospheric pollutants. Finally they will learn about types of air masses and their changes in the temperate zone of Europe, and their influence of air quality changes. After learning of basics of meteorology and climatology will be explained relations between emissions and air quality in our industrial region, with legislative background and the possibilities of air quality control in those area.
