ATSC 3401 - Synoptic Meteorology

4 sem. hrs. (3:2) This course focuses on introducing middle-latitude synoptic weather phenomenon, including planet waves, frontal systems etc. We will apply principles of Dynamic Meteorology in regards to processes in the atmosphere, weather elements and forecasting. We will examine the structure and dynamics of these systems by integrating weather observations with the current state of dynamic theory, numerical weather prediction models, and the physical principles of atmospheric thermodynamics and cloud and precipitation physics. Prerequisite:  Corequisite:  SMTE 0096  Environmental Science Laboratory Safety Seminar required every semester for lab-based courses.  The Safety Seminar must be completed before the Census Date of the semester to participate in the lab portion of this course.
Offered on sufficient demand.
