METEOROLOGY 11, 12 Semester

 Prerequisites: A course in physical science 2 Credits

 This is an introductory course in meteorology that focuses on a basic understanding of the atmosphere and its physical processes. Some areas of study include the atmosphere, winds, air masses, jet streams, Coriolis effect, moisture, precipitation, clouds, climate, and severe weather. Students gather local weather data using an electronic weather station. This data, together with newspaper information, weather maps, televised weather information, and NOAA Weather Radio, is used to forecast and analyze local and national weather. In addition, students utilize the satellite imaging system to obtain weather images from geostationary and polar satellites for use in forecasting, weather pattern analysis, and storm tracking. Access to weather information/data over the Internet is available.
