Topics covered include phenomena at local to regional scales (e.g., microclimatology, the urban heat island effect, and severe weather), global circulation patterns, and basic concepts in meteorology. Lab activities will involve students collecting their own observations with weather instruments and analyzing data from on-campus weather stations in order to better understand variability in local weather and climate.
