Objectives and content

Objectives:

The Master’s Program in Meteorology and Oceanography provides comprehensive insight into the forces that control the movements of the atmosphere and the ocean including sea ice; central physical processes in the atmosphere and the ocean; the interaction between sea, sea ice and atmosphere; weather forecast, the cycling of nutrients and carbon in the ocean; and regional and global climate and climate change. The aim of the program is to provide insight into Earth’s physical environment with specialisation in one or more of the atmosphere, ocean and sea ice components.

Content:

The foundation of the study is the understanding of both the physical and the mathematical description of central atmospheric and oceanographic phenomena. For this, measurements, experiments, theory and numerical modeling are used. Admission to the program requires a thorough background in meteorology, oceanography, mathematics and physics.

For meteorology, the program provides the theoretical basis for weather phenomena, the use of numerical models to forecast the development of weather systems, study of boundary layer processes near the sea surface, sea ice or land surface, local weather and climate phenomena and study of atmospheric radiation processes.

Physical oceanography and marine biogeochemistry provides knowledge of the theoretical and empirical basis for the physical processes that give rise to variation and change in the ocean, the cycling of matter in the ocean, the coupling between physical oceanography and marine ecosystems, and climate. The study spans from local (fjord, coast, shelf) to global scales.

Climate dynamics addresses the link between the atmosphere, sea ice and ocean; and the identification, understanding and projection of natural variations and man-made changes to regional and global climate. The analysis is typically based on theory, analysis of observations and numerical modeling.

The master study provides the theoretical and/or experimental knowledge of one or more of the main components of the climate system. This ensures a solid foundation for further work as a professional meteorologist, oceanographer or climate expert in governmental and private sectors (e.g., research, environmental management, consultancy, power company, renewable energy, oil industry, or as an associate professor in primary and secondary schools given additional, pedagogical education).
