This course introduces students to a wide variety of basic atmospheric concepts and, in the process, enables them to gain a better understanding of "how the weather works." The course is best suited for students wishing to develop a fundamental understanding of Earth's atmospheric systems and to gain a greater appreciation for the atmosphere. The prime objective of this science course is to familiarize students to the physical processes associated with weather and climate, including jet streams, cyclones/hurricanes/typhoons, cloud types, air masses and fronts, global warming impacts, ozone hole El NiÑo/La NiÑa, Fujita scale, and anthropogenic climate change.
