Seminar: Ecological Climatology (GCE:A2a) (24008)
S, 3 ECTS
Starting date: tba.
also for MSc-Geoöko: PM3.4 and MSc-PhyGeo: I02,W13
Learning Objectives (Module A2): Climate Ecology is the interface between Ecology, Micrometeorology and Climatology as an interdisciplinary formation to understand the function of terrestrial ecosystems within the climate system. This course integrates the disciplinary areas of Meteorology, Hydrology, Soil Science, Plant Physiology, etc. to understand the physical, chemical and biological processes relevant to climate with which landscape and atmosphere are connected, and which can mutually influence both systems. In this module students should develop a problem and process-oriented understanding with a variety of scale levels about the interaction between Pedosphere, Biosphere and Atmosphere. Furthermore, students learn to collect and analyze terrain data.
Course Content: The seminar deals with climate-relevant material and energy flows in the soil-vegetation-atmosphere system on different scale levels. In particular, the interrelation between single compartments of ecosystems and their ecological relevance on climate will be dealt with.
