Course Description

This lecture and lab course introduces the ways in which the complex interplay of solar radiation, temperature, moisture, atmospheric pressure, and wind produces the short-term atmospheric conditions called weather and the long-term atmospheric conditions called climate. It gives particular attention to the ways in which weather and climate influence human life and to evidence of climate changes, past and present.
