MTR 1400 - Weather and Climate

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): Minimum performance standard scores on reading, writing, and mathematics pre-assessment placement tests

Description: This course introduces the fundamental physical processes in the atmosphere-heat and energy, temperature, pressure, wind, clouds, precipitation, and stability. These concepts provide the basis for understanding weather systems, such as thunderstorms, tornadoes, and hurricanes. These processes are also applied to climatic patterns and the impacts of human activity on weather and climate, such as air pollution and climate change. An optional 1-credit lab course, MTR 2020 Weather and Climate Lab for Scientists, is available for students interested in additional experience in the measurement and analysis of atmospheric data, and is required for some science programs.

General Studies: Natural and Physical Sciences

Guaranteed Transfer: GT-SC2
