Meteorology for biologists

About this Page

This website contains material intended for biologists, especially biogeographers, ecologists, and geographers of various sorts. This material is a blending of my lifelong interest in aspects of biology and my professional background in atmospheric science. A number of presentations are included in this section, mostly related to aspects of satellite-based climatologies or various environmental issues.
