GEOG 4090 - Dynamic Meteorology II

Continuation of Dynamic Meteorology I, with a focus on mid-latitude atmospheric dynamics. Examines the process of a developing mid-latitude cyclone from genesis to lysis, and the interplay between vertical motion, horizontal advection, temperature, and (to some extent) moisture. An investigation of atmospheric dynamics in the planetary boundary layer, where friction must be considered, concludes the course.

Requisites: GEOG 4080
Credit Hours: 3
Repeat/Retake Information: May be retaken two times excluding withdrawals, but only last course taken counts.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Students are able to do routine analytical calculations of real-world phenomena.
  • Students can quantitatively explain the dynamics of mid-latitude cyclones, both at the surface and aloft.
  • Students can understand the physical equations that govern atmospheric motions.
