ERSC206 Weather and Climate (3 semester hours)

This course will provide an introduction to meteorology and climate for scientists. We will explore the basics of Earth system, atmospheric thermodynamics, atmospheric chemistry, cloud physics, atmospheric boundary layer and radiative transfer. The background from these topics will provide the foundations to discuss climate change and climate dynamics. We will examine current research on the areas of climate change research to learn about the current state of climate change. (Prerequisites: SCIN234 or PHYS134, and MATH226)
