This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

Every few years we read about a flood along the front range of Colorado. This lecture, we will explore the meteorological phenomena that cause Front Range flooding, and why some floods cause local damage while other floods affect a large area. We will examine not only the meteorology, but elementary stream geomorphology to explain these events.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
