PHY-114 Meteorology

This course studies the physics of weather. All concepts are taught from their appropriate Physics principles. Our atmosphere's composition is studied along with those heat transfer mechanisms that lead to its thermal structure. Weather elements - temperature, humidity, clouds, pressure, winds, and precipitation - and their physical interactions are analyzed. The equations of motion are applied to the dynamics of hurricanes, cyclones, and anticyclones. Labs emphasize the Physics of sun-weather relationships, weather maps, and forecasting. >General Education Course. Lecture [3.00], Laboratory [3.00].
