Course Description

Introductory weather lab in which students work with observational data, graphics products, charts and instruments used by synoptic meteorologists to forecast weather. Lab sessions will include current weather products downloaded from the American Meteorological Society's "Online Weather Studies" homepage which has been specifically designed for this course and from De Anza College's automated rooftop weather station. Students will practice the analysis and decision-making skills employed by meteorologists to diagnose air patterns, understand air motions and predict future atmospheric conditions.
