Description:
Definitions of climate. Historical development of climatology. Climate system. Climate elements and factors. Solar radiation. Long-wave radiation of the Earth and the atmosphere. Radiation budget. Energy budget. Spatial and temporal changes of the air temperature. Measures of oceanity and continentality of climates. General atmospheric circulation. Air flows of synoptic and local scales. Hydrological cycle. Spatial and temporal changes of precipitation. Basics of bioclimatology. Climate classifications. Natural and anthropogenic climate changes. Climate models and parameterizations of physical processes.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:
After completion of the course the students will be able to:
1. explain the terms of climate, climate elements and factors which affect energy and radiation budget of the Earth and the atmosphere;
3. analyse real data to estimate oceanity and continentality;
4. explain spatial distribution of different climate elements;
5. define climate types and attribute climate type based on real data;
6. explain natural and anthropogenic climate changes;
7. explain climate models and used parameterizations.
