Course Description: This course covers the composition and structure of the  atmosphere, the flows of energy to, from and through the atmosphere, and the  resulting motions produced from small to planetary scales. The physical  principles of atmospheric phenomena are stressed to provide an understanding of  weather’s impact on humans, particularly the impact of severe weather. Methods  of analysis are developed through the study of current weather as  meteorological data are delivered via the Internet.
