ATOC 3180: This course is designed to provide a broad overview of aviation meteorology and advance students’ understanding of the atmosphere for the purpose of maximizing aircraft performance while minimizing exposure to weather hazards.
ATOC 4550: This course will provide a broad overview of mountain weather and climate. What causes the snow in the Rocky Mountains to be “the greatest snow on earth”?
ATOC 4700: Trying to understand the basics of meteorological processes and forecasting, independent analysis of weather events, forecast preparation, and mastery of hand data analysis?
ATOC 4520: Introduces the fundamental physical principles that govern the atmosphere, and provides an elementary description and interpretation of a wide range of atmospheric phenomena.
ATOC 5600 Physics and Chemistry of Clouds and Aerosols : Clouds and aerosols are ubiquitous in planetary atmospheres, where they impact climate, atmospheric chemistry, remote sensing, and weather. Applies basic microphysical, radiative, and chemical processes affecting particles to issues in the current literature.
ATOC 6020 Seminar in Atmospheric Sciences – Precipitation Systems: The seminar is a journey discovering universal physical processes and local effects of precipitation development, enhancement and maintenance around the world visiting places like the European Alps, Taiwan, Washington Cascades, California Sierra Nevada, and the Rocky Mountains.
