ATMO 660: Advanced Dynamic Meteorology Department of Geography Spring 2007 – 3 Credit Hours Instructor: Cornelis (Kees) J. van der Veen Office: 203 Lindley Hall Hours: MW 12:00 – 2:00 Phone: 864-7725 E-mail [email protected] General Course Description and Objectives The objective of this course is to provide students with the skills necessary to analyze and quantitatively describe atmospheric motions from microscales through synoptic scales. Quasi– geostrophic theory is covered by developing the quasi–geostrophic momentum and thermodynamic energy equations and then deriving the quasi–geostrophic potential vorticity equation and the omega equation. Linear wave theory is introduced to analyze atmospheric waves and is applied to develop a baroclinic instability model. Emphasis is on understanding how the governing equations are applied and solved. Prerequisites ATMO 640; MATH 320; PHSX 212. Course format
