MET 101 - Introduction to Meteorology/Weather

Description: To understand the daily and seasonal weather, students will be introduced to the basic weather elements such as temperature, atmospheric pressure, wind, humidity, precipitation and cloudiness. Real-time weather maps and forecast models from the internet are often used in class to enhance the study of particular topics. After a good foundation in the basic principles of meteorology, various atmospheric phenomena will be discussed, including the formation of rainbows, thunderstorms, lightning, tornadoes and hurricanes. Many of these phenomena are illustrated through video media. Laboratory exercises include the study of weather observations and radar images from the WSR-88D, analysis of surface maps, including the plotting the location of warm and cold fronts, upper-air maps, the analysis of soundings on Skew-T diagrams and weather forecasting. Hybrid-online sections of this course may be offered. For these hybrid-online sections, students will meet the professor on campus to take exams and perform the labs. Students will learn the lecture material using web-based learning activities posted by the professor to the Blackboard learning management system. Students enrolling in a hybrid section must have access to a computer, the internet and a printer in order to complete on-line assignments. (3 lecture, 3 laboratory hours) Lab fee applies.
