The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model is a next-generation mesoscale numerical weather prediction system designed for both atmospheric research and operational forecasting applications. It features two dynamical cores, a data assimilation system, and a software architecture supporting parallel computation and system extensibility.

Atmospheric Chemistry entails the study of the chemical composition of and transformations in the atmosphere. It concerns both trace gases and particulate matter (PM), and encompasses all regions of the atmosphere, from remote, "clean" upper tropospheric regions to surface, urban, "polluted" regions.

Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics publishes original research papers discussing physical and chemical processes in both clear and cloudy atmospheres.

The following topic areas are particularly emphasized: atmospheric dynamics and general circulation; synoptic meteorology; weather systems in specific regions, such as the tropics, the polar. Professor Anastasio's research explores the chemistry and composition of tropospheric aerosol particles and cloud/fog drops, typically using laboratory studies.

Reactions in these particles and drops are an important component of the biogeochemical cycles of nutrients and pollutants that can alter atmospheric composition and affect climate and. Meteorology investigates the physical and chemical processes in the atmosphere.

The best-known applications are weather forecasting and climatology. Weather forecasting requires mainly numerical methods and mathematical expertise, which our textbooks convey in an understandable way and by means of numerous examples.

The upper layers of the atmosphere are studied in aeronomy. Meteorology focuses on weather forecasting and includes atmospheric physics and atmospheric chemistry.

Climatology studies atmospheric changes that occur due to natural and anthropogenic climatic variability. Atmospheric science is a vast field that also encapsulates planetary science. Atmospheric Science is a huge and complex discipline, interfacing with earth science, astronomy, physics, chemistry, mathematics, etc., and this introductory single trimester course can only expose the student to a small subset of the potentially relevant material.


The questions and problems presented here are intended to supplement my book Introduction to Atmospheric Chemistry (Princeton University Press, ).
