EASC 1310 - Meteorology - 4 credits
Natural Science (03)
Meets MN Transfer Goal 3 - Natural Sciences. This is an introductory meteorology course designed for non-science majors. This course focuses on understanding the basic concepts of meteorology by emphasizing observations of the atmosphere and using those observations to explain atmospheric phenomena. This course emphasizes key atmospheric concepts that enable students to understand how science can explain the weather phenomena they see in their daily lives and how these phenomena are connected to short term events such as local weather, severe storms and atmospheric stability and long term effects such as global warming. This course includes a lab component where students will learn to use real data to analyze and predict weather patterns and atmospheric phenomena. Student Learning Outcomes: * describe the physical processes that affect and create meteorological phenomena * describe the layers and components of the atmosphere and the energy cycle in the atmosphere * interpret temperature cycles in terms of the surface energy budget and atmospheric stability * explain how clouds and precipitation form and describe the different types * explain how weather observations are made and interpreted * explain atmospheric forces and global scale winds, the jet stream, and high and low pressure systems * explain Atmosphere-Ocean interaction and the El-Nino phenomena * describe types of air masses and the formation and types of fronts * explain how surface cyclones and the jet stream interact to create life threatening storms and be able to identify these patterns on satellite images * describe formation and characteristics of different types of thunderstorms and tornados * identify the cause and location of small-scale winds severe turbulence * interpret various types of weather data and use that data to generate numerical weather forecasts * identify climate zones of the world and describe the natural processes that affect global climate and climate changes * explain the feedback mechanisms that stabilize the world climate, discuss human causes of global climate change, and identify ramifications and options for addressing global warming * evaluate societal issues from a natural science perspective, ask questions about the evidence presented, and make informed judgments * demonstrate and apply critical thinking skills to analyze a variety of weather phenomena * work cooperatively and effectively in groups engaged in the process of science and show respect for other people's needs, ideas, and feelings * model professional and responsible behavior by being on time, participating in class discussions and completing assignments on time * demonstrate effective use of resources including faculty, other students, reference materials, industry sources, and the Internet
