Aim of the course and learning outcomes:
To teach students methods of measurement and evaluation of meteorological observations, conducted in a network of meteorological stations, methods of measurement and evaluation of microclimatic characteristics, which are carried out in the forest. Proper determination of fluxes of energy and awareness of water balance components in relation to habitat conditions. Understanding the process of weather forecasting in order to make maximum use of data. Use all the knowledge to describe the climate of the forest, which is an integral part of the production process in forest stands.
