Master’s programme in Atmospheric Sciences & Biogeochemical Cycles

Programme contents

Our Master´s programme in Atmospheric Sciences & Biogeochemical Cycles is a multidisciplinary program, involving, among other topics:

  • atmospheric sciences covering physical phenomena
  • atmospheric chemistry
  • meteorology
  • physical geography and ecology

Part of the content of the programme is related to the interactions between ecosystems and the atmosphere. There are two lines of study in the programme: general atmospheric science and biogeochemical cycles. At our department, we offer the biochemical cycles line. As a student, hower, you will learn the basics of both.

Studies in this programme provides you with an in-depth understanding of the following phenomena:

  • processes in aerosol physics and atmospheric sciences
  • micrometeorological processes
  • biogeochemical cycles of carbon and other compounds
  • physical and chemical processes of greenhouse gas production
  • processes in land-ecosystem-atmosphere interactions involving phase transitions or mass and energy fluxes
  • advanced computational and laboratory-based methods as well as
  • field measurements for the analysis of processes in the atmosphere and biogeosphere, in an international scientific context
