This course deals with the vertical structure of the atmosphere and the physical relations that explain it. The starting point is the general gas law and the properties of ideal gases. Transfer between work, internal energy and external heat sources/sinks is investigated with the help of classical physics. Further subjects treated are evaporation, condensation and freezing of water, which largely determine the temperature variations in the atmosphere.
