Learning Outcomes
Subject Matter Objectives: 1. Understand basic characteristics of the atmosphere, its structure, and its dynamics. 2. Understand the role of the earth’s surface and oceans in forcing and regulating atmospheric processes. 3. Be able to explain meteorological phenomena at various scales in terms of basic physical and dynamic processes, including radiative forcing, thermodynamics, microphysics, and dynamics. 4. Know the design and use of meteorological instruments, and techniques for collecting and interpreting the data. 5. Be able to handle, analyze and interpret meteorological and climatological data. 6. Be able to explain current climate in terms of basic physical and dynamical processes, and explain the mechanisms responsible for climate change. 7. Communicate an understanding of weather and climate orally and graphically. Skills Objectives: 1. Develop their understanding of atmospheric processes through an examination of processes operating within the real world 2. Awareness of the connections of meteorology and climatology within the environmental sciences and/or the social sciences, and to demonstrate meteorology’s importance within these endeavors 3. To introduce students to new skills involved in meteorological research 4. Be able to explain ideas and results through written, graphical and oral of communication. 5. Qualified for admission into graduate programs in meteorology, climatology and atmospheric science.

Course Content (Syllabus)
Study of the weather and climate. Understanding of the atmospheric processes. Description and study of the physical elements (solar and terrestrial radiance, atmospheric pressure, temperature, precipitation, wind etc) and the physical processes (atmospheric and oceanic circulation) that determine the weather and climate of a region. Understanding of their interaction with the other elements of the physical environment such as the biosphere. Description and understanding of the climate distribution on the earth.
