New for fall: Meteorology at NOVA-Manassas

Do you want to learn how meteorologists forecast the weather? The Manassas Campus of Northern Virginia Community College will offer a meteorology course for the first time this fall.  

“Meteorology” (NAS 125) presents a nontechnical survey of fundamental meteorology and covers the effects of weather and climate on people and their activities.

Instructor John Cornicelli is a member of the American Meteorological Society with a bachelor’s degree in meteorology and a master’s degree in applied physics. After serving a 20-year career in the U.S. Air Force in a variety of fields including meteorology, he currently works with the Department of Homeland Security.

The course will meet on Tuesday evenings starting Aug. 25 and will involve both in-class and online meetings. A schedule of the in-class and online sessions will be distributed during the first class.

Students must register no later than 11:59 p.m. Aug. 23. Online registration is open 24 hours a day at www.nvcc.edu and in-person assistance is available during normal business hours at the Student Services Center.

Earth science teachers may be able to use the meteorology course for endorsement or recertification. To learn more about the course, contact Cornicelli at jcornicelli@nvcc.edu.
