UK student looking for another spring class? Try Biometeorology!
Fall advising is upon us as we look forward to the spring semester. If you’re looking for an extra class, consider AEN 461: Biometeorology. In this class, I focus on the relationship and impact of weather and climate on living organisms, particularly Kentucky agriculture. In just a couple of examples, students learn the basics of weather forecasting in the Ohio Valley, developing short- and long-range forecasts. Last year students learned firsthand how complicated the weather can be in Kentucky when we had three winter storms in February. We’ll also take a look at Kentucky’s shifting climate and the corresponding impacts on Kentucky agriculture. If you’re a weather nerd like me, this is your course!
One change to note: The class is now being offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00-3:15 PM. This three-credit hour course is open to undergraduate and graduate students. If interested and have questions, please don’t hesitate to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd be happy to have you enroll!
