In this course the Earth’s atmosphere and it’s relation to the environmental engineering aspects are analysed. Energy balance of the atmosphere contains the latest information on greenhouse warming along with additional information on heat transfer. Seasonal and daily temperatures, atmospheric humidity measurements as well as the wind speed patterns are discussed. Particular emphasis is given to the thermodynamics of the air and the equations governing the air masses circulation mainly inside the boundary layer. Thereafter, the atmospheric stability and the weather systems are discussed. The reduction in atmospheric ozone layer and various climatic changes are studied. The atmospheric trace gases and suspensions, heterogeneous nucleation, cloud hydrodynamics and particles deposition, cloud chemistry and cloud electricity are studied in detail. The turbulent kinetic energy and prognostic equations for turbulent flow is also studied. The Earth’s Changing Climate has includes the latest information on global warming and feedback mechanisms. Finally Climograms and Koppen’s climatic classification of the world are analysed. [ECTS=5]
