Course Information This course covers introductory information about Earth’s atmosphere, weather development, and extreme weather events. To understand the destructive power of weather events, you must first have a basic understanding of why and how they form. In other words, this is a “science” course, although a background in calculus, chemistry, or physics is not required. This course will help you understand the weather outside your window everyday, and can serve as a springboard towards more advanced coursework in weather and climate. Students will be introduced to basic concepts of the science of weather and climate and current scientific developments in areas such as extreme weather forecasting and global climate change.
