[ESE 132. Introduction to Meteorology and Climate]

Physical concepts necessary to understand atmospheric structure and motion. Phenomena studied include the formation of clouds and precipitation, solar and terrestrial radiation, dynamical balance of the large-scale wind, and the origin of cyclones. Concepts developed for understanding today's atmosphere are applied to understanding the record of past climate change and the prospects for climate change in the future.

Note: ESE 132 is also offered as EPS 132. Students may not take both for credit. Undergraduate Engineering Students should enroll in ESE 132. Previously ENG-SCI 132. Likely to be offered in Fall 2020.
