Description
Weather and Climate Laboratory
This course introduces weather and climate via hands-on means with three areas of emphasis: weather map analysis, atmospheric physics experimentation, and making weather observations. Weather map analysis will revolve around the construction of surface weather maps from plotting, isopleth analysis, and interpretation. Atmospheric physics experiments will demonstrate aspects of how the atmosphere works. Making weather observations and discussing weather instrumentation (where those observations come from!) will be part of the course via an online weather journal.
