Lecturer: Hervé Le Treut

The course will cover the following topics:
-An overview of radiative processes affective global climate. Links with past climates.
-From radiative to radiative-convective equilibrium: the role of stratification in climate energetics.
-The different scales of atmospheric dynamics: application to cloud generation.
-Climate stability and climate feedbacks: the role of small-scale processes.
-Conclusion: a first approach of model validity at different prediction ranges.
