Contents of the module
The student is assigned a project after the block course has finished. The duration of the project is about one week.
The student presents the results of this project in a seminar.
|5||Requirements for participation|
Undergraduate knowledge of meteorology (e.g. atmospheric dynamics, boundary layer physics, radiation, remote sensing) is presupposed.
Type of module examinations
Oral examination (graded)
Requisites for the allocation of credits
The module mark is the mark of the examination.
A failed examination may be repeated twice. Additional possibilities to repeat an examination exist according to the examination regulation (§ 20 section1).
