A one-week compact course in Atmospheric Chemistry and Dynamics (ACaD) will take place at the Institute of Energy and Climate Research at the Forschungszentrum Jülich from September 16th to September 20th, 2024. This collaborative course is jointly offered by the University of Cologne and the University of Wuppertal and is open only to full-time attendees (no online course will be offered this year).

The objective of this course is to provide a comprehensive introduction to the basics of atmospheric chemistry and dynamics. The course is designed to enable students to understand the chemical and dynamical processes that control the state of the atmosphere. The course covers a range of topics, from large-scale dynamics such as the Brewer-Dobson circulation to small-scale chemical processes as those resolved in the Jülich simulation chamber (SAPHIR). The course will be a combination of lecture-oriented activities, hands-on experiments, and tours through the laboratory facilities.

Because of a limited number of places, not all applications can be considered. In any case, you are encouraged to register at your earliest convenience!


The course is intended for PostDocs, Master and PhD students with scientific background in (Geo-) Physics, Meteorology, Chemistry, Applied Mathematics and Geoecology, especially if his or her further study will be focused on topics related to the Atmospheric Chemistry and Dynamics. Other participants are also welcomed. However, good basic knowledge and experience with linear algebra, differential calculus and statistics are essential for a successful completion of the course.
