12.318 Introduction to Atmospheric Data and Large-scale Dynamics (New)


Class Info

Provides a general introduction to meteorological data and analysis techniques, and their use in the MIT Synoptic Laboratory to study the phenomenology and dynamics of large-scale atmospheric flow. Illustrates balance concepts as applied to the dynamics of frontal and synoptic scales, using real-time upper-air and surface station data and gridded analyzed fields. Uses advanced meteorological software packages to access, manipulate, and graphically display the data. Students taking graduate version complete different assignments.

This class has 12.390 as a prerequisite.

12.318 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by L. Illari.
