Wow! Sometimes introductory lectures are not so informative because professors talk about a subject rather than the subject itself. But Fovell instantly changed my understanding of weather while piquing my curiosity about a range of upcoming lectures centered on two straight-forward phenomena. He is a master lecturer.
