This Website

We'll use a combination of this website and Canvas for the course this semester.  If that gets to be too confusing or too cumbersome, we'll adjust as needed.

Course Text

As of 1 May, NONE!  We'll use the "JetStream" website, provided by the National Weather Service.  In addition, I'll provide numerous handouts and additional readings.  (Hint: get a three-ring binder.)
