MTEOR 4520: Climate Modeling

(Dual-listed with MTEOR 5520).
Credits: 3. Contact Hours: Lecture 3.

Prereq: MTEOR 3010
Developing and working with climate models based on fundamental physical principles that govern the climate systems of the Earth and other planets. Emphasis on coupled, nonlinear-system interactions of physical processes such as circulation dynamics, radiative transfer, and cloud/precipitation physics, starting with fairly simple 0- and 1-dimensional analytical and numerical models based on energy, mass, and momentum conservation. Observational study of seasonally evolving weather patterns that form climates around the world. An understanding of atmospheric physics comparable to MTEOR 3010 is advantageous. Offered even-numbered years. . (Typically Offered: Spring)
