EARS 78 Climate Dynamics

This course focuses on the physics that govern the circulation of the atmosphere and ocean, and the dominant patterns of climate variability that we observe today. We explore global-scale atmospheric dynamics that explain why the atmosphere behaves as observed. We also use the scientific literature to investigate the signature and causes of regional ocean-atmosphere variability including the El Nino­ Southern Oscillation, monsoons, and North Atlantic Oscillation, and the influence of climate change on these patterns.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
