Content and learning outcomes
This course provides students with a basic understanding of meteorological relationships in applications relevant to transportation. Students learn to how to work through weather-related problems, including how to handle large amounts of data.
Weather and climate impact nearly all areas of the transport sector. The course covers key meteorological relationships with a focus on impacts on land and maritime transport as well as the processing of weather data for technical applications, including changes in driving behavior under precipitation and wind, seasonal variations and energy consumption forecasting, coefficient of friction, weather-dependent driver performance, and data aggregation.
