ATMO 525 Air Pollution Meteorology

ATMO 525.  Air Pollution Meteorology.  3 Credits.   N   

A study of background levels and concentrated sources of atmospheric pollution together with considerations of pollution buildup in urban areas as related to particular weather conditions. Inadvertent weather modifications and effects of atmospheric pollution on particular weather events and general climate will be discussed. Prerequisite: ATMO 105, MATH 125, EECS 138 and CHEM 130.

Bachelor of Science in Atmospheric Science

The Bachelor of Science in Atmospheric Science (B.S.) is designed to meet the recommendations of the American Meteorological Society for a bachelor’s degree in meteorology/atmospheric science.  There are four options, each of which meet these recommendations. 1. General Option This option is for students who want a broad background in atmospheric science.  It is also the most suitable option for those who are aiming at a career in weather forecasting.  It includes a third semester of synoptic meteorology as well as an air pollution course. 2. Air Pollution Option Students prepare for a career emphasizing environmental aspects of meteorology.  This option includes an additional semester of chemistry as well as environmental studies. 3. Hydrometeorology Option Students prepare for a career involving the interface between meteorology and hydrology.  These studies have important applications to flash floods, droughts and water supply.   This option includes additional courses on fluid flow and hydrology from the School of Engineering. 4. News Media Option This option is for students who wish to enter careers whose main function is to provide information to the general public.  It requires additional courses from the School of Journalism.

Minor in Atmospheric Science

The minor in Atmospheric Science augments other fields of study and broadens career opportunities. The minor requires ATMO 105 , ATMO 321 , and ATMO 505 plus three courses from the following: ATMO 521 , ATMO 525 , ATMO 630 , ATMO 640 , ATMO 642 , or ATMO 680 . Students must have a minimum grade point average of 2.0 in courses taken for the minor.
