The Master´s programme is multidisciplinary, involving a versatile education on 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. The students will, however, learn the basics of both lines.
Studies in the ABS programme give a deeper 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, working in an international scientific context.
Two study lines are offered: General atmospheric science line of study and Biochemical cycles line of study. The Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science offers the Biochemical cycles line.
