Meteorology

   Approximately one third of the course is dedicated to the study of meteorology.  In class the study of Meteorology is split into two units.  The first will examine Atmospheric composition, structure, wind and clouds.  The second will examine weather, forecasting and climate. Understanding the mechanics of the atmosphere and long term observation of the weather are both important for the basic weather prediction that we will do in class.  Each unit page below  has links to class topics on YouTube.
