EAS 3340 - Microclimatology

(OPHLS-AG, PBS-AS)      
Fall (offered alternate years). 3 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: EAS 1310  or EAS 2500  or a course in physics.

S.C. Pryor.

Atmospheric processes at the micro to meso scale. Topics include the surface energy balance, atmosphere-surface exchange of energy and mass, boundary-layer meteorology, flow in complex (and simple) terrain, and deliberate and inadvertent climate modification. A series of exercises will be used to illustrate theoretical concepts using examples from agricultural applications and the renewable energy sector.
