- G&G322a/G&G522a: "Physics of Weather and Climate: Topics covered: The climatic system; survey of atmospheric behavior and climatic change; meteorological measurements and analysis; formulation of physical principles governing weather and climate with selected applications to small- and large-scale phenomena.
- G&G470b/G&G570b: "Cloud Physics and Dynamics":Topics covered: A foundation in atmospheric science topics relevant to the formation and evolution of clouds. Atmospheric convection, with and without the phase changes of water, Cloud microphysics, focusing on the formation of cloud droplets and ice crystals and their subsequent growth to form precipitation. Cloud dynamics, including mesoscale convective systems, squall lines, orographic precipitation, and sea breeze circulations. Emphasis will be given to dynamical descriptions of these phenomena using simplified sets of the equations of motion. The role of clouds in Earth’s energy budget and climate.
