Dr. Holmes teaches the following courses for undergraduate and graduate students.
General Meteorology (MET2700)
The fundamentals of atmospheric science, including the forces driving the weather, winds, clouds, and precipitation. In addition to understanding the physical principles, students also learn to use python for data visualization.
The class is required for meteorology majors and available to any undergraduate who has completed a year of college-level Calculus, Physics, and Chemistry. This course is offered every fall semester.
Atmospheric Composition, Chemistry, and Climate (MET5607)
A graduate-level lecture and seminar class on the composition of the atmosphere, air pollution, and greenhouse gases. We approach the the processes driving the composition of the atmosphere through marquee environmental problems that have been or are being addressed by atmospheric science: stratospheric ozone loss, urban ozone and aerosol pollution, and radiative forcing of climate change.
This course is typically offered in spring semester of odd years. Senior undergraduates may enroll in a cross-listed undergraduate section, with instructor permission.
Biogeochemical cycles and Global Change (MET6155)
A graduate-level lecture and seminar class on the greenhouse gases, nutrients, and pollutants that cycle between the atmosphere, oceans, and land.
This course is typically offered in spring semester of even years. Senior undergraduates may enroll in a cross-listed undergraduate section, with instructor permission.
