As an introduction to cloud-topped boundary layers taught at Utrecht University I have written a syllabus. It discusses the main thermodynamic quantities used in cloud research, as well as a short explanation of the physical processes that take place in stratocumulus and shallow cumulus.

Another syllabus briefly presents the global energy balance, some large-scale dynamics, turbulence and the dry convective boundary layer. These topics are part of the courses 'Physics of the Earth and Atmosphere', 'Water in the Atmosphere', and 'Environmental Physics'.
