Course in Atmosphere-Ocean and Climate Dynamics

Course in Atmosphere-Ocean and Climate Dynamics
Atmosphere-ocean system is mainly driven by the radiative energy from the sun. The process of the redistribution of the energy produces various phenomena with a wide range of spectrum such as daily weather, El Nino, global ocean circulation, etc. Although such phenomena in the atmosphere-ocean system play important roles in forming and changing our environment, there are still many unsolved problems. Our goal is to understand the physics of atmosphere and oceans, atmosphere-ocean-land interaction including the chemical processes and their roles in the earth system. We have many teaching staffs covering various fields: physical oceanography, atmospheric science, geophysical fluid dynamics, sea-ice and climate dynamics, who will make you possible to study various phenomena in the atmosphere-ocean system.
