Quantitative description of cumulus convection, multicell and supercell storms, tropical cyclones, local circulations (thermal and terrain forcing), and downslope windstorms. Whenever possible, we will undertake real-time examination of storms as the may develop around the country.

Students will undertake evaluation of recent literature or an independent research paper.
