Proposal

Proposal ID: 102054
Type: Change Course
Submission Date: January 2, 2018 11:09am
Approval Date: January 11, 2018 8:13am
Effective Term: Spring 2018
Justification:
ATS 310 is a gateway class for the climate science option. While we wish the class to be mathematically and physically rigorous, the intent of the class is for students to build confidence in physical reasoning and problem solving. We have changed the style of instruction such that integration is not required for problem solving, removing the requirement for this pre-req (MTH 252). We have added the first chemistry class in the chemistry sequence as this class covers similar thermodynamics to the second physics class. It is anticipated that students will gain depth of knowledge by taking the basic physics or chemistry thermodynamics classes along side applying these concepts to meteorology. We anticipate this will increase enrollment to a class that might otherwise be only open to advanced physics students.

Description:
Updated
The study of the atmosphere, in particular atmospheric phenomena that we experience as weather. In this class key physical concepts in meteorology are introduced and explored. The physics of the atmosphere necessary to understand why atmospheric phenomena occur and how these are forecast is discussed. Meteorological data from observations and models will be analyzed to explore concepts introduced in the context of the weather we experience. Lec/Lab.
