block course. Physical limnology (physics of lakes)
location: on the campus of the Heidelberg University
This block course aims at presenting the basics about physical processes in lakes, such as stratification, waves, currents, turbulence, mixing and matter transport. The course will consist of 14 lectures of 90 minutes accompanied by short exercise sheets. Lectures will be held in English. Most lectures will be presented by Dr. Bertram Boehrer (UFZ, Priv. Doz. Univ. Heidelberg) and Prof. Andreas Lorke (Univ. Landau). For the year 2016, we chose the focus of transport of matter in limnic waters. This includes lectures by Prof.Dan McGinnis (Inst. F.A. Forel, Université Geneve) and Dr. Martin Schultze (UFZ) on gas ebullition, turbulent transport and precipitation and redissolution of matter.
A more detailed programme will be issued closer to the block course. Students and scientists interested in attending the course are requested to contact us by email no later than the 31st Jan 2016. For further information, please address Bertram.Boehrer@ufz.de .
