Meteorology Curricula 372

This curriculum will provide qualified personnel with a sound understanding of the science of meteorology. The program is designed to provide the student with:

  • A thorough understanding of the principles governing the physical and dynamic properties of the atmosphere.
  • The ability to observe, assimilate, analyze, interpret, and predict atmospheric parameters and conditions using field experimentation, direct and remote sensing observational techniques, statistical analyses and numerical models.
  • A thorough understanding of the effects of atmospheric properties and conditions on weapon, sensor and platform performance while conducting and supporting military warfare.
  • A meteorological research experience germane to military warfare, culminating in a thesis of professional quality.

My job is to support you in your educational efforts and answer any questions you have as a future, current, or graduated student. This website is designed to answer some of these questions, but please do not hesitate to contact me directly at (831) 656-2045 or
