Taught by Professor Robert G. Fovell | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
In this lecture, you encounter some of the most dramatic air-flow patterns found in nature, the swift, turning winds of the cyclone. Trace the lifecycle of the extratropical cyclone, which draws its power from the huge energy generated when different air masses meet.
