  • ATOC 1060 - Our Changing Environment: El Nino, Ozone, and Climate
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019 / Spring 2020
    Discusses the Earth's climate for nonscience majors, focusing on the role of the atmosphere, oceans, cryosphere and land surface. Describes the water cycle, atmospheric circulations and ocean currents, and how they influence global climate, El Nino and the ozone hole. Discusses human impacts from climate change. Recommended prerequisite: ATOC 1050. Degree credit not granted for this course and GEOL 1060.
  • ATOC 3070 - Introduction to Oceanography
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020
    Explores Earth's dynamic oceans. Discusses the disciplines of oceanography including marine geology, chemistry, biology and physical oceanography with emphasis on global change. Specific topics may include: tectonics, currents, biogeochemical cycles, ecology and global warming. Recommended prerequisite: any 1000-level ATOC or GEOL course or ATOC major. Same as GEOL 3070.
  • ATOC 4500 - Special Topics in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021
    Acquaints students at the upper division level with current research in atmospheres, oceans, and climate. Topics may vary each semester. May be repeated up to 18 total credit hours within the degree as long as the topic is different. Students may register for more than one section of this course in the same semester. Recommended prerequisites and corequisites: will vary depending on topic. Recommended restriction: students with 57-180 credits (Juniors or Seniors).
