Learn More About Weather
« on: May 19, 2007, 06:11:38 AM »
Thanks to ANVANA for finding and telling us about the MetEd site...it looks like an excellent resource to me. When I get some free time I'll probably do some of the modules myself.

Quote
The MetEd (Meteorology Education and Training) Website (www.meted.ucar.edu) was established to provide education and training resources to benefit the operational forecaster community, university atmospheric scientists and students, and anyone interested in learning more deeply about meteorology and weather forecasting topics.

The site houses online learning materials, as well as information on other training and education activities, such as classroom courses and teletraining, and links to other related resources.

MetEd is populated and maintained by the COMET Program, which is part of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research's (UCAR's) Office of Programs (UOP). The MetEd Website is made possible by the sponsors of the COMET Program.

Topics include a variety of subjects including Aviation Weather, Coastal Weather, Tropical/Hurricanes, Emergency Management, Fire Weather, and more. A complete list of topics is available on the site home page.

Registration is required to participate, but according to the site, there is no charge for taking the courses.

Thanks guys.

I have learned a TON from MetEd.  Many of the courses cover the exact same material as in met school.
