*** Please print out your own copy of the lecture notes (or bring your laptop); hardcopies will not be distributed ***
*** 2/2/09--Please check frequently for updates to lectures notes. Sorry, but I am constantly revising and writing material. On the bright side you get the clearest, most up-to-date material I can provide. On the downside you will have to check and make sure you are working with the most-updated version of the lectures notes. I will try my best to make sure they are posted by 10:00 pm the night before class.
The next problem set is due on Thursday Feb 5. Download it here.
Tuesday January 27:in-class paper discussion. We will discuss "Global and Regional Climate Changes due to Black Carbon" by Ramanathan and Carmichael, Nature Geoscience, April 2008.
