  • ATOC 2050 - Introduction to Atmospheric Research
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021
    Uses real world data to investigate the basic physical processes that drive the coupled atmosphere-ocean system (e.g., energy distribution, phase changes, stability, winds and currents). Students will apply logic to predict how processes are impacted as different environmental characteristics change and develop skills in graphical literacy, investigative thinking, societal and personal relevancy, and communication.
  • ATOC 4550 - Mountain Meteorology
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020 / Fall 2021
    Investigating main processes that control weather and climate in the western United States and other mountain ranges around the world is the emphasis of this course. Provides an advanced survey of synoptic, mesoscale, and microscale meteorology in complex terrain including orographically modified cyclone evolution, front-mountain interactions, terrain and thermally driven flows, mountain waves, downslope winds, and orographic precipitation. Recommended prerequisite: ATOC 1050 or ATOC major. Same as ATOC 5550.
