Unit Master's Programme in Atmospheric Sciences 

Target group 

Master’s Programme in Atmospheric Sciences is responsible for the course.

Modules where the course belong to:

  • ATM300 Advanced Studies in Atmospheric Sciences
    Optional for:
    1. Study Track in Aerosol Physics
  • TCM300 Advanced Studies in Theoretical and Computational Methods

The course is available to students from other degree programmes.

Learning outcomes

Completion methods 

Weekly programming / conceptual equation development exercises and final home exam.


Aerosol Physics I and II should preferably be performed before this course.

  • Derivation of physico-mathematical equations
  • Indoor aerosol model
  • cluster model
  • models to describe new scientific findings
  • conceptual aerosol dynamic model(s)
Study materials and literature
