Micrometeorology (2018 Spring)
- Course DescriptionMicrometeorology is the study of short-lived atmospheric phenomena smaller than mesoscale 1km or less).
too small to be depicted on a weather map. However, the micrometeorology controls the most important mixing and dilution processes especially interactions among ecosystem and atmosphere. Important topics in
this feild include heat transfer and gas exchange between soil, vegetation, and/or surface water and the atmosphere caused by near-ground turbulence. Principles, methods and techniques in micrometeorology for
understanding the tranport of net radiation, sensible heat flux, latent heat flux, ground heat storage, and fluxes of trace gases important to the atmosphere, biosphere, and hydrosphere will be introduced.
