I am Fan Wu, and I will be your instructor for METEO 469, a course offered by the Department of Meteorology and Atmospheric Science at The Pennsylvania State University. My connection with Penn State goes beyond my current role—I embarked on my academic journey here in 2019 as a postdoc, exploring atmospheric sciences and cultivating a profound interest in the influence of global warming. Prior to joining Penn State, I conducted research in coastal meteorology at the University of Connecticut from 2018 to 2019.

A fully online course may be new to you, which may require some adjustments or new approaches on your part, but I am available to help you with any questions or difficulties that may arise about the content and logistics of the course.  

All the best for a great semester!

This course was created by Dr. Michael Mann, who was formerly a faculty member in the Department of Meteorology and Atmospheric Science at Penn State.
