Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Students acquire detailed knowledge of the concepts and methods in the field of atmospheric aerosol physics. The course will be based on an "inverted classroom" - concept. Videos of the lecture will be available online. The contents of the course can be discussed with the lecturers during the classes in the corresponding Moodle course. Please register to access the Moodle course.

Mondays:
Prof. Bernadett Weinzierl
The contents include: A selection of: Structure and composition of the atmosphere, dynamic and optical phenomena in the atmosphere, physical properties and transport of atmospheric aerosols, atmospheric radiation balance, greenhouse effect and climate change, aerosol measurement technology

Wednesdays:
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Paul Winkler
The contents include: A selection of: Condensation processes in the atmosphere, formation of new aerosol particles by nucleation, fog and cloud formation, secondary organic aerosols (SOA), aerosol measurement technology

Methods: Online: at the beginning of every course there will be short presentations summarizing the video courses. The remaining time is available for answering questions and discussion.

Note: It is recommended to choose this course only if the lecture 260010 VO "Aerosol Physics - Physics of Disperse Systems" or the module WPF 9 "Aerosol Physics" in the Bachelor Degree Physics at the University of Vienna has been completed.

Assessment and permitted materials

No continuous assessment course.

The course serves as preparation for the M-Core 8 module examination.
The proof of performance for Module 8 (VO+PUE) is provided by the written exam.
No aids except non-programmable calculators are allowed.

Examination dates:
The examination dates can be found online (u:find).

First examination date: Friday 28.01.2022, 16:15 – 18:15, Christian-Doppler-Hörsaal, Boltzmanngasse 5, 3rd floor, 1090 Vienna

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

In order to attain a positive grade at least 50.00% of the total points must be achieved.
The grading key for assessment is:
Very good: 100.00% - 87.00%
Good: 86.99% - 75.00%
Satisfactory: 74.99% - 63.00%
Sufficient: 62.99% - 50.00%
Not sufficient: 49,99% - 0,00%

Examination topics

All contents of the lectures and exercises (M-Core 8 VO+ PUE) as well as the referenced literature.
The PUE (from the M-CORE 8 module) serves as preparation for the module exam. The skills and abilities acquired in the PUE are a key component of the module objectives and are inherently examined in the module exam.
