OBIETTIVI E CONTENUTI

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI

The aim of the course is to introduce the fundamentals of atmospheric circulation that govern weather and climate from synoptic scale to mesa-alfa scale. Attention will be paid to the extremes, climate change impacts on the environmental risks, impacts on the intensity and frequency of extreme meteorological and hydrological events (floods, droughts, hurricanes, wind storms, heat waves, etc). A review on formulation and parameterizations used in numerical weather prediction models will be presented. The concept of uncertainty in numerical modelling of the extreme events will be presented with idealized and real cases applications. Students will learn to treat numerical and observational atmospherical data using MATLAB.
