Adam is the most straight-farward professor. He thinks everything through very carefully, so all his lectures, assignments, and tests are very well constructed and are fair assessment. The assignments are long, so give yourself plenty of time. This was an amazing course with a fantastic prof!

Comment:
Adam was a good guy. Homework was really difficult and long. Midterms were fair (although for the short answer he is very picky grader). The material is VERY dense. I wouldn't recommend this course if you haven't done an EOS course before or are looking for an easy elective. Adam's course notes definitely helped, but the course was still hard.

Comment:
Adam Monahan is just a great guy. You can tell he cares about his students and he tries to make the material as clear and understandable as possible. I have taken both EOS 225 and EOS 340 with him and even though the material was very difficult Adam made understanding it attainable.

Comment:
He's easily the best lecturer I've had at UVic, and he's incredibly kind and approachable. The material is hard, so you do need to work for it - that's why the assignments are so long. But if you've done the assignments, you can do very well on the midterms.

Comment:
Adam is fantastic. This was easily the hardest course I've taken at university, and although the material is challenging, Adam is very approachable, understanding, and willing to help. The way he teaches modelling and the math he uses is so elegant. I didn't do so great on the midterm (D) but pulled a B+ on the final with hard work. Don't skip!

Comment:
The notes that he provides are amazingly clear and better than any textbook. I would highly suggest having them printed and bound at Zap ($30) because the exams are open-book (but no computers). The assignments take a while to complete, so give yourself a few days on each one, but they're straightforward. There are no tricks in this class.

Hard course for geos. Moho is awesome though, a real treat to watch in action. Dynamic and precise in his talks, even at 830am. Loves math, so brush up on your differentials. Use MATLab to do your assignments. Go to the tutorials. Print the accompanying PDF he gives you on the website - he wrote it and teaches almost straight from it. Great.

Adam is one of the best teachers in a great department. Take this course, even if it's not required for your program! Atmospheric goes much more in depth than EOS 110 and yes, the assignments require you to do some math, but Adam is very helpful during the tutorials. After attending the lectures, I found many of the test questions predictable.

He's really wordy and sounds like the short guy from the princess bride. But if you need help, he's always there and can really dumb it down for you.

WARNING: if you are taking his course as an easy science elective-DONT. He is a good teacher, the notes are good and the midterms are fair, but the assignment are stupidly hard. This is definately not an easy course.

Very clear and ordered presentation. His course pack is so good you don't need to buy a textbook. Assignments are difficult but interesting. No surprises on tests. Very fair.

Assignments are retardedly hard and pointless, but the rest of the course is great. I think too many people approach it thinking it's gonna be first year EOS again, but if you want an in depth look at the atmosphere, this is it. Learned a ton.

I thought this course had so much potential, however easily one of the most boring I have ever taken. He makes the assignements much more work than they are worth, and you dont' know what's expected out of you from the tests. Terrible.

He takes the fun out of Atmospheric Sciences. His hair flicking is very annoying. His notes have tons of errors.
