MET 303 - Synoptic Meteorology II
2015-2016 Catalog Year
Continuation of MET 301 with emphasis on mid-latitude cyclone and anticyclone development (e.g., quasi-geostrophic theory, baroclinic instability, lee troughing) and synoptic-scale forcing of severe weather events. Interaction of the synoptic-scale with global and meso-scale phenomena will also be discussed.
Prerequisites: MET 301; Corequisite: MET 304
