More on Mesoscale MeteorologyMesoscale Primer
For an introduction to the world of mesoscale meteorology and to our mesoscale modules, we suggest that you begin with the two overview modules:
from our Mesoscale Primer Course.The Mesoscale and Winter Weather
Develop your mesoscale prowess with a series of winter weather case exercises in the Mesoscale Aspects of Winter Weather Forecasting module.COMET Outreach Projects
A recent project teamed the University of Oklahoma with the Norman, Ok NWS Forecast Office to evaluate downscaled high-resolution WRF simulations for use in operational forecasting. The results of the study are available here.
State University of New York – Oswego and the NWS forecast office in Buffalo participated in a study that used the WRF model to simulate lake-effect snow bands and to investigate the relationship between environmental conditions and the distribution of snowfall. Ten meteorology majors were involved in analyzing the case studies. Their accomplishments are described in "Improving the understanding and prediction of lake-effect snowstorms in the eastern Great Lakes region."
About Our Training Resources
Our training consists of lessons and courses. A lesson is targeted toward one focused subject, whereas a course is a collection of lessons that pertain to a broader subject area. You can receive certificates of completion for both lessons and courses. Courses are entirely self-paced and available for open enrollment. We also list a select set of resources that are not hosted on MetEd that are of high quality and of interest to our community.
The COMET® Program's virtual classroom provides access to material in support of our residence and virtual courses. These courses are generally available by invitation only and are hosted at our UCAR facility in beautiful Boulder, Colorado.
