Theory and Methods of Physical Geography
This course gives you an introduction to the basic physics, matematics and statistical methods used within physical geography.
After the course you will have an improved insight and understanding of basic mathematical and statistical methods of physical processes in the biosphere, the atmosphere and the hydrosphere, as well as their mathematical formulation. You will be able to formulate simple mathematical models for analysing dynamic systems, as well as for collecting data of different physical, chemical and biological processes.
Besides lectures you will exercise with computer based analysis- and presentation tools, information collection with both oral and written presentations. You will work individually as well as in groups.
