Introduction to Meteorology



Welcome to Introduction to Meteorology! You may view the syllabus on the left. The text for this course is Ahrens, C. D., and R. Henson, 2017: Essentials of Meteorology: An Invitation to the Atmosphere. 8th ed. Cengage Learning, 509 pp. (ISBN-13: 978-1305628458). To save a bit of money, I recommend using AddALL to purchase the book. Older editions are suitable, but the page numbers will differ from those listed in the syllabus.

I will post grades on Moodle. Please ensure that you can log in and view the course.

Since geography is so important to meteorology, there will be a quiz on the U.S. states at the beginning of the second class (January 24). I will give you a map and a list of states and you will identify each state with the correct spelling. Please use the study guide on the left and the links below to practice.
