You are interested in the atmosphere and its role in Earth’s climate. This Meteorology and Air Quality programme from Wageningen University and Research enables you to obtain profound insight in the functioning of the atmosphere on a range of scales in space and time (from daily weather to long term climate). You can focus on the physics and dynamics of the atmosphere as well as on its composition and chemistry. Different track suggestions will guide you through the subjects of Weather and climate dynamics, Urban meteorology and air quality, Atmospheric chemistry and air quality, and Boundary-layer meteorology, and land-atmosphere interactions.
The use of advanced atmospheric models, observations and data science and data handling is essential to understand the evolution of the atmosphere. Your academic skills, research skills and knowledge developed in this specialisation will help you in the context of research in atmospheric sciences, weather forecasting, environmental policy, air quality inventories and scenario analysis.
