CLM 364 - Land-Atmosphere Interactions

4 Credits

From plants to soils, the nature of the land surface has many effects on the air above it. In this way, land-atmosphere interactions are a critical component of climate science. In this course, students use a variety of field measurements from our region to examine the exchanges of energy and water between the land and the atmosphere. Through these measurements, students see the important role of vegetation in the climate occur before their eyes as the spring phenology of the Northwoods unfolds.
Prerequisites: CLM 125  and Sophomore standing
