Master’s programme in Atmospheric Sciences & Biogeochemical Cycles

ABS is one of the five master programs offered by the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science. The program is given in cooperation with 13 Nordic universities spread over seven countries. You are therefore encouraged to study part of the programme abroad, or at any of our partner universities.

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
