This course draws upon the equations of motion in the atmosphere to develop a theoretical understanding of the atmospheric boundary layer. This understanding is compared with real observations taken with the Department's rawinsonde equipment, as well as published data. The emphasis is on blending theory and practice to enhance the student's understanding of the behavior of the atmosphere.
