Meets TTH 11:00AM-12:30PM JES A121A

An introductory look at weather and climate, this course will include a thorough discussion of atmospheric processes, clouds, precipitation (types), air masses, frontal boundaries, introductory discussions of severe local storms (and their offspring) and tropical cyclones as well as the climatology of these weather systems. Also included will be a brief introduction to the Koppen Climatic Classification System along with discussions of climatological processes, regimes, and climate change.

GRG 301K • Weather And Climate

36330 • Fall 2015
Meets TTH 11:00AM-12:30PM JES A121A

Our study of weather and climate is intended for Geography/Environment majors and all others interested in a broad brush examination of the atmospheric and climatic sciences. This study will be introductory in nature with only a very basic use of mathematics. We will start with a study of meteorology. From this foundation, we will go into the different aspects of the atmosphere and then, later, into climatological matters and discuss the various climatic regimes including that of Texas and the local area.

GRG 333C • Severe And Unusual Weather

36425 • Fall 2015
Meets TTH 2:00PM-3:30PM CLA 0.106

As a continuation of and having a prerequisite of GRG301K/Weather and Climate, this course expands more specifically into a detailed discussion of atmospheric hazards such as severe thunderstorms and their offspring (hail, lightning, tornadoes, damaging winds and flash floods) as well as tropical cyclones. As part of that discussion, we’ll discuss human risk perception as it regards these atmospheric hazards.

PREREQUISITE: Sucessful completion of GRG301K/Weather and Climate in a prior semester.
