Course description and aims

For understanding and predicting about an environmental system as a complex systems including many factors quantitatively, numerical simulation is absolutely necessary tool. In this course,
(1) Atmospheric environments (urban/regional scale meteorology)
(2) Water environments (coastal and groundwater environments)
(3) Global environments (global scale ocean, atmosphere and watershed system)
The aims of this course are (1) to understand latest achievements in each field of environmental modeling and (2) to learn how to apply the numerical simulations of environments to real research fields. Through this course students are expected to acquire how to apply modeling and numerical simulation technique to their own research.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to understand latest achievements in each field of environmental modeling, and will be able to learn how to apply the numerical simulations of environments to real research fields.

Keywords
