Meterology

Course Description

This introductory laboratory science course focuses on the physical and chemical processes that affect Earth's weather and climate by examining the composition and structure of the atmosphere and the sources of energy and moisture driving atmospheric processes. The causes of climatic events and the impacts of human activities on weather and climate will also be explored in the context of severe weather events, global warming and stratospheric ozone depletion. The laboratory component includes experiments, workbook exercises, and real-time computer weather graphics and simulations that enable students to measure, analyze, and interpret real world meteorological data utilizing the scientific method of inquiry. (Prerequisites: MATH-021, MATH-025 or satisfactory completion of the College's foundational studies requirement in algebra, and READ-092, READ-095 or satisfactory completion of the College's foundational studies requirement in reading)
