This is a laboratory course to support instruction in a general introduction to meteorology course for the science major. Students engage in hands-on experimentation and participate in instructor led demonstrations of the physical and chemical properties of the atmosphere. Students participate in the construction, review and analysis of a variety of maps, charts, graphs and models used by atmospheric scientists to forecast the weather, document air pollutants, and monitor climate, among others. The course reviews the appropriate use and calibration of the analytical techniques and equipment used in the atmospheric sciences.
