Analysis Methods in Atmospheric and Oceanic Science
Prerequisite: PHYS141 and MATH241; or students who have taken courses with comparable content may contact the department. Recommended: AMSC460, CMSC660, AMSC660, or CMSC460. A variety of the analysis methods used by atmospheric and oceanic scientists will be applied to observational data sets such as Vostok ice core record, temperature trends, and satellite measurements of ozone,sea ice, etc. in a hands-on, computer laboratory setting. Students will be exposed to Fortran and Python as well as modern file formats such as HDF and netCDF. No prior programming experience required.
