Introduction to Atmospheric Science 2021

The Introduction to Atmospheric Science course covers essential learning material for aspiring atmospheric scientists.

This year, in a new online format, the Introduction to Atmospheric Science will take place in January 2021 over ten half-days, delivered through interactive lectures and activities.

Our wide-ranging course is a kickstart to a career tackling the biggest environmental challenges we face today, including climate change and air pollution. 

By touching on the fundamentals of weather, climate and air pollution, our experts will provide an overview of how our atmosphere links these topics together, and open the doorway for more detailed study in observations and modelling.

“The range of lecturers and exercises were very useful, and group work activities reinforced some of the new information I learned.”

Designed and delivered by leading researchers from across the atmospheric science community, the Introduction to Atmospheric Science is tailored towards environmental science PhD students.

“The Introduction to Atmospheric Science course provides an important grounding for PhD students and early career researchers who are new to this interdisciplinary topic. We aim to open your eyes to the importance of atmospheric observations, and to show how modelling can be an effective tool in any researcher’s toolkit.”

Dr Barbara Brooks, Joint Head of the Atmospheric Measurement and Observation Facility

After finding their feet in the fundamentals of atmospheric science, many students continue to develop their data handling skills on the Introduction to Scientific Computing course, and to explore the observational side of atmospheric science by attending the Atmospheric Measurement Summer School.
