Courses I Teach
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.
Fundamentals of Physical Meteorology
Overview of fundamental physical processes in the atmospheric sciences. Topics include thermodynamics, radiative transfer, and cloud microphysics.
Advanced Cloud Physics
Nucleation and growth of water and ice particles in clouds; precipitation production; aerosol-cloud-climate interactions; dynamics of stratiform and cumuliform clouds.
