Irregular and External


INTEGRATE (Integrated Teaching of Atmospheric Science, Technical Skills and Empirical Methods) is an open-access, open-source teaching package covers the topics of physical climatology, empirical methods and a hands-on approach of collecting and analysing atmospheric data. Its development was supported by the EGU Higher Education Teaching Grant 2020 awarded to S. Mutz.
