Course Description

How Does Weather Work? An Introduction to Meteorology

Instructor: Jonathan Roth
Dates: Wednesdays, Feb 1-Mar 29
Time: 2:00 PM-3:30 PM
Location: Online via Zoom  


This course will discuss a variety of topics in meteorology.  By its nature, physical principles will be discussed and explained.  However, the course will be descriptive and not mathematical.  There is a 50% chance that the instructor will rain in his humor and just share the cold (and hot) facts.
Maximum online registrants: 500


Why when I’m registering do I join the Wait List?
Several of our courses are in high demand. In order to accommodate our members who are not tech-savvy and have trouble registering online, we created a registration system in which there is no advantage to registering early, no disadvantage to registering later.

When registering, you join the Wait List for each course. Don’t be alarmed. This does not mean the course is full. After the registration period is over, we run a lottery on the courses, and it randomly determines who is admitted to each course and who is not. You typically will receive notification regarding which courses you are admitted to, about two weeks before the start of the semester. If a course accepts 150 or more students, you are very likely to get into it.
Thank you for your interest in this course. Unfortunately, the course you have selected is currently not open for enrollment. Please complete a Course Inquiry so that we may promptly notify you when enrollment opens.
