GEOG 220:
Weather & Climate

    This course is an overview of the atmospheric sciences of meteorology and climatology in a geographical context. In an effort to understand global atmospheric processes, the course examines fundament
    al physical processes and disturbances in the atmosphere from both short-term (meteorology) and long-term (climatology) perspectives. Prerequisites: GEOG 111 and GEOG 112 or permission of instructor. Offered every year

GEOG 286:
Intro Geographic Info Sys-Lab

    This course provides an introduction to the theory and application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for mapping and basic spatial analysis. It examines fundamental concepts of spatial relation
    ships, spatial data representation, geographic data models, spatial data acquisition, spatial analysis, and map design. Laboratory exercises emphasize hands-on applications on a variety of topics that require students to perform common GIS tasks and design and produce professional quality maps. Restricted to Geography Majors. Course is available for non-Geography majors by permission of instructor. Offered every fall
