An introduction to atmospheric sciences. This course discusses aspects of weather and climate both from a phenomenological and analytical point of view. The course balances overview lectures (also covering topics that have high media coverage like the "Ozone Hole" and "Global Warming") with a few in-depth analyses of selected aspects. Lectures are complemented with homework based on real data, demonstrating basic data analysis techniques employed in atmospheric sciences.
