Description

This course series is currently in development and is part of a collaborative effort by NCAR's Earth Observing Laboratory, Millersville University, and The COMET Program.

The first lesson, "Foundations of Meteorological Instrumentational and Measurement," is available on MetEd and accessible below. 

In late October 2017, two more lessons are planned to be released.

  • Meteorological Instrument Performance Characteristics
  • Instrumentation and Measurement of Atmospheric Temperature

Seven more lessons are in progress and the full series should be complete by the end of 2019. This series in total will provide approximately 15 hours of atmospheric instrumentation training.  The future lessons include:

  • Instrumentation and Measurement of Atmospheric Pressure
  • Instrumentation and Measurement of Atmospheric Humidity
  • Instrumentation and Measurement of Precipitation
  • Instrumentation and Measurement of Winds
  • Instrumentation and Measurement of Atmospheric Trace Gases
  • Instrumentation and Measurement of Radiation
  • Instrumentation and Measurement of Clouds and Aerosols
