Introduction to Meteorology



Welcome to Introduction to Meteorology! You may view the syllabus for your course section 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.

This course is entirely online. The class will meet synchronously via Zoom. This site hosts lecture notes, links, and illustrations from the lectures. I will post videos, homework, quizzes, exams, and grades on Moodle. Please ensure that you can log in and view the course. Then visit this page often to complement the Moodle experience.

Geography is very important in meteorology. Please complete the quiz on the U.S. states by following the directions on Moodle. The quiz is due before August 25, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. You may use the study guide on the left and the links below to practice.

Please complete the "UNC Asheville Career Survey, Fall 2022: Miller" survey available via Moodle by September 13, 2022. This will count as a quiz grade. Access this as a separate course in your Moodle dashboard. Please let me know if you have trouble finding it.
