Meets with GEOG 3205. Graduate students should enroll in GEOG 5205 and will be held to higher standards and/or more work. In this course we explore the distribution of climates around the world. We will investigate energy and moisture in the atmosphere, atmospheric circulation, controls of regional and microclimates, applied climatology, climatic variations, and consider past and future climates. This course is elemental for understanding the impacts of climate change on life on our planet.
