Advanced Atmospheric Physics
A preparatory course for research in experimental and theoretical atmospheric physics. Content will vary from year to year. This year we will seek an understanding of the terrestrial atmosphere’s structure, the role of moisture in the atmosphere, and an introduction to atmospheric dynamics, starting from physical first principles. The course involves analytic and computational exercises, some observational data analysis, and reviews of papers in the Atmospheric Physics literature.
