MET 4400 -- Meteorological Instrumentation and Observations (Credits: 3 ) Justification: This course primarily supports the Atmospheric Science Track, B.S. Major in the Department of Earth and Environment. It provides essential content in Meteorological Instrumentation and Observations to students who have an academic focus on atmospheric sciences or wish to pursue a specific career path in meteorology. This is a required course for B.S. degree in Atmospheric Sciences recommended by the American Meteorological Society (AMS). This course also introduces basic knowledge in satellite and radar. There is no similar course at FIU. Course description: This course introduces theory and practice of calibration and operation of basic meteorological sensors, which are used to measure temperature, atmospheric flow, pressure, and moisture. Satellite and remote sensing measurements are also included in this class. The course includes in-class demonstrations and laboratory projects designed to illustrate applications of meteorological instruments through hands-on experiences. Course objectives: The main goal of this course is to introduce students the basic atmospheric measurement methodology and the fundamental physics behind the measurements. Specific topics include
