EV387 (Version: 2019 2) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
EV387 METEOROLOGY 2019 2 Geography and Environmental Engineering 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course introduces meteorological processes, systems, and patterns with emphasis on spatial distributions. The course begins with a comprehensive look at the structure of the atmosphere to include the energy budget, heat transfer mechanisms, as well as an examination of daily and seasonal patterns of temperature. A thorough look at atmospheric moisture and stability precedes a study of cloud and precipitation processes followed by a study of the atmosphere in motion, namely air pressure, governing forces, winds, small and local-scale wind systems and the general circulation of the planet. Specific phenomena are then examined, including mid-latitude cyclones, thunderstorms/lightning, tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, hurricanes, air pollution, and a brief look at climate and climate change. The end of the course focuses on the art and science of weather forecasting and its applicability to military operations. In-class labs.
