The goal of this course is to introduce participants to the basic concepts of meteorology and air quality necessary to understand meteorological computer models. This course, along with companion courses in Computational Atmospheric Science and Emissions, anticipates the Models3 environment under development by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Upon completion of the course, participants ... Full description.

This Javascript calculator was designed to calculate lifting condensation level (LCL) conditions using only three atmospheric input parameters that are commonly measured and reported during most local televised weather forecasts: surface temperature, surface dewpoint, and surface pressure. Output is pressure and parcel temperature at LCL. Though this calculator was designed to calculate the lifting ... Full description.

This applet simulates the difficult concepts of adiabatic processes. A leaf visually symbolizes a parcel of air rising over a mountain. Users are allowed to vary the beginning temperature and vapor-pressure of the parcel of air, and the relative wind speed as it moves up and over a mountain. Graphs then display temperature verus altitude and vapor pressure as the leaf rises and falls. A series of ... Full description.

The Atmosphere-Ocean Model is a computer program that simulates the Earth's climate in three dimensions on a gridded domain. The model requires that the user enter two kinds of input, specified parameters and prognostic variables, and will generate two kinds of output, climatic diagnostics and prognostic variables.
