The aim of this lecture is to provide a basis knowledge of the ill-posed / inverse problems in atmospheric physics and to discuss their solutions upon a few specific examples. The focus will be on atmospheric lidar data retrieval (aerosol-polarization lidar, Raman lidar, High Spectral Resolution lidar).
The detailed program of the lecture will be given at the first meeting.
The lecture is open to students who do not have an extensive knowledge of the atmospheric physics. However, the knowledge of mathematics at the level of Analiza I and basic programming skills (Matlab environment preferred) are required.
The lecture is taught in English, thus language skills at an intermediate level is obviously required as well.
An estimated student workload:
- participation to the lectures: 30 h
- preparation for lectures and writing the report on the experiments: 25 h
- preparation for the exam: 15 h
