Many Dimensions of Climate Change
This course provides a fascinating look into the forces of nature and advances in technology that help meteorologists monitor and predict storm patterns. It is ideal for the amateur weather enthusiast who wants to learn more about the art and science of weather forecasting and the invention and evolution of key forecast instruments.
We'll explore how weather forecasting evolved from simple observation to a serious and technical science that allows real-time reporting aided by aircraft, satellite imagery, radar, infrared images, and more. These modern tools allow us to better observe weather patterns, anticipate how one system will interact with another, and more accurately predict tornadoes, hurricanes, and winter storms.
We'll also explore local weather history by looking back at notable weather events in and around the Valley.
Meteorology 101 is not required as a prerequisite but helps understand the fundamentals of how weather works.
