Class presentations available.
This series of DVD-based lectures concludes a survey of the science of the weather. It addresses such questions as: What causes violent weather? How can you decipher the charts and jargon that meteorologists use? How do meteorologists make predictions and how well do they do? The classes are based on a Great Courses DVD series presented by Professor Robert Fovell of UCLA, supplemented by additional material and class discussion led by an OLLI member.
