Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Student will be able to formulate the basic concepts and relationships of meteorology and climatology - Student will be able to use the acquired knowledge in practice for the assessment of weather in relation to pollution air and weather conditions for the dispersion of pollutants in the air - Student will be able to present and articulate their knowledge in the field of meteorology and climatology

Summary

As part of the course, students learn about the Earth's atmosphere and heating processes at the Earth's surface and troposphere sunlight. They will learn the relationship between the heating of the troposphere, horizontal changes in the pressure field, the emergence of flow and general circulation of the atmosphere. Become familiar with the causes and course of climate cycles on Earth and in temperate regions. Become familiar with the stability of the atmosphere and its impact on the dispersion of pollutants in the air. In conclusion, identify types of air masses and their alternation in the temperate zone of Europe, queues and their impacts on air quality changes. Upon learning the basics of meteorology and climatology will be familiar with emissions - air pollution in industrial relations in the Ostrava region and legislative documents and the way to improve and maintain air quality.
