Classes Taught by John Cassano
ATOC 1050: Weather and the Atmosphere: Severe and Hazardous Weather
This course is designed to provide students with the knowledge to understand the processes responsible for creating the weather that they experience on a daily basis.
ATOC 4720: Introduction to Atmospheric Physics and Dynamics-Undergraduate
This course explores the physical processes occurring in the atmosphere, with an emphasis on those processes that give rise to atmospheric circulations across a range of spatial and temporal scales.
ATOC 4750/5750: Desert Meteorology
In this course we will discuss the unique characteristics of desert weather and climate.
ATOC 5050: Introduction to Atmospheric Physics and Dynamics-Graduate
This course provides a quantitative view of atmospheric thermodynamics and dynamics, supplemented with frequent real-world examples of the phenomena of interest.
ATOC 5060: Dynamics of the Atmospere
This course will provide a quantitative view of atmospheric motions on a range of scales including micro- to mesoscale boundary layer processes, mesoscale features including fronts and mountain waves, and synoptic scale mid-latitude weather systems with frequent real-world examples of the phenomena of interest.
ATOC 6020: Weather Forecasting Seminar
This seminar is designed to stimulate discussion of current weather events and allow ATOC faculty, students, and other interested parties to share their knowledge of local weather and weather forecasting.
