Classes offered 2017/2018:

- GEO-361 (fall semester)
- GEO-427 (fall semester)

GEO-361 / AOS-561 / Earth's Atmosphere
This course covers the physical and chemical fundamentals of Earth's atmosphere. Non geo-majors are very very welcome. The course is quantitative, but doable with a basic understanding of physics and mathematics. Course materials are available on blackboard.
GEO-427 / AOS-527 / Fundamentals of Earth's Climate System
(Co-taught with Dr. T. Delworth) This class provides overview of the broad factors that determine our current climate, as well as past and future climates. The focus is on Earth's energy and water cycles, the processes determining the principal atmospheric and ocean circulation features, climate feedback processes, and dominant modes of variability.
GEO-415 / Introduction to Atmospheric Sciences
This 400-level course covers the physical and chemical fundamentals of Earth's atmosphere. Juniors and non geo-majors are very very welcome - the course is quantitative, but doable with a basic understanding of physics and mathematics. Course materials are available on blackboard.
AOS-523 / Water in the Atmosphere
This course integrates aspects of radiation, thermodynamics and transport to discuss the role of water vapor and clouds from the perspective of the global general circulation. Course materials are available on blackboard.

Departemental courses
I am also regularly teaching lectures for GEO-503/AOS-503 (Responsible conduct of research in Geosciences) and GEO-506 (Fundamentals of Geosciences).

Prospective students

Undergraduate students
Please contact me for an actual list of topics for Junior/Senior thesis. Note that some familiarity with computers is required, and ideally you should have attended/plan to attend GEO-361.
Graduate students
Graduate students may join my group either via the Geosciences Department, or the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program. If you are interested in joining our group, please contact me before you apply.
