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.
