Physics of Atmosphere and Ocean
IIT Delhi; Dr. Om P Sharma
Outline: The entire lecture course, consisting of 12 Modules, introduces to an entrant basic meteorology and oceanography, atmospheric thermodynamics, ocean physics, radiative transfer in the atmosphere and heat-induced tropical circulations. Topics in each module have several excellent textbooks, which the Instructor has followed in preparing these lectures. Each module is founded on basic subject knowledge and provides a fundamental understanding of concepts discussed therein. Solved examples are also an integral part of this course and several exercises have been added. By working out these exercises, a learner can understand the science of meteorology and oceanography fairly independently.
Pre-requisites: Calculus , Desirable: Basic Fortran and C / C++ Ordinary differential equations, Partial differential equation.
