New online course for Spring 2018 -- Meteo 810:  Weather and Climate Data Sets

Climate data image for Meteo 810 course listing

Weather affects nearly every sector of society. From transportation to renewable energy, commerce to emergency management, preparing for and managing the range of probable weather outcomes is crucial for both businesses and governmental agencies. The question you might be asking is, “How can we know what to expect with regards to the weather, especially at long timeframes?” The answer, to some degree, lies buried within the vast amounts of global weather data generated each day (over 6 TB/day of observational data alone!).  METEO 810 is a professional, graduate-level course.  

The Department of Meteorology and Atmospheric Science at Penn State is introducing a series of courses in Weather and Climate Analytics that will teach you how to access, analyze, and manipulate large, publically available atmospheric datasets. These courses are ideal for anyone who works with historical or forecast weather and climate data in a weathersensitive sector. We will teach you how to manage the tsunami of information, spot patterns within it, and draw conclusions and insights relative to your sector of interest.
