Comments: A company spun-off from the University of Utah through the Technology Commercialization Office, Fallgatter Technologies provided meteorological instrumentation and consulting services. Its core product was the Multi-Angle Snowflake Camera, which photographs hydrometeors in free fall from multiple angles while simultaneously measuring their fall speed. The MASC was sold to nine different government and university agencies in three countries. It has been featured prominently by media outlets worldwide and has been the focus of documentaries for The WeatherChannel, NBC, NSF, and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation

Physical Meteorology I: Thermodynamics
Thermodynamics of dry and moist air, including diabatic and adiabatic processes, parcel theory, stability, heat engines and thermodynamic diagrams
Physical Meteorology II: Atmospheric Radiation
Solar and infrared radiative transfer in the atmosphere, and the greenhouse effect.
Physical Meteorology III: Cloud Physics
Aerosol production and removal, cloud and precipitation formation, mixing and turbulence.
Theory of solar and infrared radiation; fundamentals of energy balance and climate models; parameterization of infrared and solar-flux transfer in clear, aerosol, and cloudy atmospheres; climate perturbations due to greenhouse gases, aerosols and clouds.
