This course focuses on the most extreme weather events in the United States (primarily in the central plains and Midwest). Students will learn introductory-level atmospheric processes that control the weather, and how these processes create severe weather (i.e., thunderstorms, hail, lightning, tornadoes, ice storms, floods, droughts, etc.). A thorough review of severe weather safety and mitigation will also be explored. Graded on A-F basis only.
