I've been told that not everything in all my courses is completely
easy to understand. In reading a Borges essay on Joyce's *Ulysses*,
I came across the following quote from Lope de Vega (who is talking
about Gongora). I pass it on here, without either comment or implication...

"Be what it may, I will always esteem and adore the divine genius of this Gentleman, taking from him what I understand with humility and admiring with veneration what I am unable to understand"

Of course, all research work involves a substantial educational component, for the faculty as well as for students. This page lists the more formal and organized educational activities in which I am taking part.

- PS134 Global Warming: Understanding the Forecast
- Geosci232: Climate Dynamics of the Earth and Other Planets
- Geos348: Advanced radiative transfer
- Geo342: Intro to GFD.
- PS1 solution
- PS2 solution
- PS3 (due Wed., Feb. 18) Solution
- PS4 (due Monday, March 2) Note: There was an error in the statement of Problem 4.3 (the stationary Rossby wave problem). To be consistent with the boundary condition I gave, the mountain should have been proportional to sin(l y), not cos(l y) as I stated. I posted a corrected version of the problem set, but it's probably too late to help most of you. Solution
- PS5 (due Wed., March 11) This is the last one! (Note sign error on PV,not yet corrected on the posted problem set.)

- Geosci355: Tropical circulations and climate ("Tropics 'n' Topics")
- Paris Applied and Computational Math Quarter (for Undergraduates)
- Mathematical Modelling and Dynamical Systems ("Math Methods")
- Papers relating to matters discussed by Edouard Bard during his 2007 visit
- Climate Reading Course, Spring 2008

- Science Olympiad (Earth Sea and Sky Event)
