Introduction to environmental fluid mechanics focusing primarily on micro meteorological processes occurring in the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL). Covers: surface energy budget, basic thermodynamics relationships, basic equations of motion & energy, including important simplifications relating to rotation & atmospheric stability turbulence in the ADL (including basic statistics and spectral analysis(, ABL similarity theory and dispersion processes. Projects involve utilizing real atmospheric boundary layer data sets.
