Lecture

Biogeochemical cycles in the atmosphere (PK.1475)

Introduce the concepts and principles of atmospheric chemistry with focus on the biogeochemical cycles and atmosphere-biosphere interactions. Knowledge acquired during this course covers the atmospheric composition and the principles of key chemical processes occuring in the atmosphere. The course covers the chemistry of biogenic and anthropogenic compounds such as sulphur, nitrate, carbon and VOC, and global emissions characteristics, geochemical cycling, climate feedback mechanisms. The course further studies ozone, aerosol and cloud formation processes. The key aim of the course is to provide a general understanding of the important linkages of biosphere and atmsophere in determining air quality, cloudiness and climate.
