ATMS 421 A - Earth Systems Modeling
Introduces the fundamentals of python programming as applied to numerical modeling within the earth and environmental sciences. Students will identify key processes and relationships in systems, represent these elements numerically, use models to predict system behavior, and assess the validity of the model predictions. Previous models developed include Eulerian representations of global energy balance, glaciation, population, and a Lagrangian volcanic plume model. No computing background is required, but a prior course on integral calculus is strongly recommended. Course Information: Same as ESE 421, GEOG 421, GEOL 481, and NRES 422. 4 undergraduate hours. 4 graduate hours. Prerequisite: Junior, senior, or graduate standing in a natural science, geography, natural resources and environmental studies, or engineering. No Computing background is required, but prior course on integral calculus is strongly recommended.
