Minimum Credits: 3 Length: 90 hours Prerequisites: GEOG-101 Delivery Method: On-campus Cost: $365.28 Lab Fees: $83.73 Total: $449.01 Course Outline: https://sps.cotr.bc.ca/Outlines/Course%20Outlines/GEOG230.pdf

This course will examine the basic principles and processes governing the Earth’s weather and climate, including the movement of water. In this course, students will analyze the linkages between the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and land surface interactions responsible for creating the weather and climate that we experience each day. Specifically we will examine fluxes of mass and energy exchanges, radiation, precipitation, winds, weather systems, fluvial hydrology, water balances, and global climates.
