block course. Physical limnology (physics of lakes)
location: Institute of Environmental Physics, Im Neuenheimer Feld 229, Heidelberg, Germany
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 2020 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). In 2020, we will put a focus on water movements and matter transport. Prof. Marco Toffolon will complement the lecturer team.
The block course is free of charge. The participants only need to cover their cost for travel, accomodation and food themselves. 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 1st Feb 2020.
