Course description

The El Niño phenomenon stands out as one of the most well-known natural events on Earth. Roughly every four years, the Pacific Ocean near South America heats up around Christmas. This warming triggers a series of dramatic consequences: fish die-offs, hurricanes, and heavy rainfall that leads to coastal flooding, endangering local populations. The ripple effects of El Niño can be felt even in far-off regions. This phenomenon is rooted in the complex interplay between the ocean and the atmosphere. At the Christian Albrechts University of Kiel (CAU), you can delve into this intricate relationship by studying Climate Physics: Meteorology and Physical Oceanography in a single-subject master's program. This program focuses on two main areas: meteorology and physical oceanography. These fields are crucial for understanding and researching climate dynamics. By studying these subjects, you gain a comprehensive understanding of how atmospheric and oceanic processes interact, equipping you with the knowledge to address pressing climate issues.
