Final exam format and example questions:

The exam is out of 30 marks and is designed to fit in two hours but there is a 3 hour time block. It is closed book. Time should not be a limiting factor. You will answer on the exam sheets. There will be three multi-part questions:
  1. 5 ``define and explain in the context of this course'' (e.g. words from above list). (10 marks)
  2. 5 part short answer questions may include a figure (10 marks)
  3. choose 2 essay questions from a list (e.g. discuss how stability is evaluated in the atmosphere for dispersion models, or a topic covered by one of the guest speakers) (5 marks each, 10 marks total). The essays will be limited to two pages each.
