MET 1000 - The Atmospheric Environment W (3-0) [0.50]
An introduction to the atmospheric environment which covers global to local scales. Topics covered are: understanding weather maps and forecasts, weather indices for plants and people, local-scale microclimates of natural surfaces and cities, intentional modification of microclimates, diffusion of pollutants in the atmosphere and their impact on air quality and climate change, policy issues associated with air quality and climate change. (Offered through Distance Education format only.)

MET 2020 - Agrometeorology W (3-0) [0.50]
Weather and climate effects on agricultural production. Relation of water balance and other climate factors to growth and yield of crops, introduction to crop-weather modeling, climate hazards and their control, weather aspects of pest and disease management.

MET 2030 - Meteorology and Climatology F (3-2) [0.50]
Solar and terrestrial radiation; pressure systems and winds; atmospheric stability and vertical motions; air masses and fronts; clouds and precipitation; selected topics in applied meteorology including air pollution. The laboratory emphasizes the analysis and use of atmospheric data for solving environmental problems.


MET 3050 - Microclimatology W (3-0) [0.50]
This course examines natural and intentionally-modified microclimates near the earth's surface; energy budgets; transport of mass and heat. Familiarization with some instruments for microclimatic measurements will be required.

MET 4100 - Physical Meteorology W (3-0) [0.50]
This course introduces the principles of physical meteorology, including structure and composition of the atmosphere, radiative transfer, atmospheric energetics and cloud formation. All topics will be discussed in terms of global climate change. (Offered in odd-numbered years.)

MET 4210 - Atmospheric Experimentation and Instrumentation W (3-0) [0.50]
This course covers the design and implementation of field experiments for atmospheric and environmental studies. Principles of operation and practical consideration of various meteorological and soil sensors will be discussed along with overall design and implementation procedures for environmental monitoring. Students will prepare a proposal detailing an experimental design of their own.

MET 4250 - Topics in Atmospheric Science S,F,W (0-6) [0.50]
In this course students will carry out a research project in an area of special interest. Individualized supervision will be provided by a faculty member. The preparation of an oral and/or written report will be required. Formal agreement between the student and the faculty supervisor is required. Students should make these arrangements during the course selection period prior to the semester.

MET 4300 - Atmospheric Transport and Chemistry W (3-0) [0.50]
Behaviour of synoptic scale weather systems and the transport of substances in the atmosphere. Chemical and photochemical transformations during transport; scavenging and removal from the atmosphere. (Offered in even-numbered years.)
