Primary Instructor:

The greenhouse effect, stratospheric ozone depletion, the polar ozone holes, and urban smog are discussed from a scientific perspective using the latest information. Human-induced change in atmospheric composition is a primary vehicle for Global Change. These changes can affect atmospheric motions, including jet streams, fronts and violent storms. The atmosphere interacts with all other components of the environment: the oceans, the geosphere (solid earth), the biosphere (living plants and animals), and the cryosphere (glaciers and ice-caps). These interactions and "feedback mechanisms" are a central theme of this course.
