Using Scatterometer Wind and Altimeter Wave Estimates in Marine Forecasting

Using Scatterometer Wind and Altimeter Wave Estimates in Marine Forecasting

I enjoyed this lesson. It took me about 4 hours, with a tea break, to complete but I was really taking my time. I enjoyed the flow of the lesson, there wasn't excessive time spent on the mechanics of scatterometers while at the same time a good introduction was given. The case studies were interesting. As an operational forecaster I found a few of the examples a little "obvious" and was looking for the trick question but that's on me, not the lesson. When you hear hooves, think horses not zebras as they say. I took the quiz directly at the end of the lesson without "revision" and the score reflects my breezing through it. I could do better. Overall I really enjoyed this afternoon. It's my first time completing an online lesson and I'll do it again soon.

Include audio sessions to make it more interesting

Short and to the point for an operational marine forecaster.

I think this lesson improve our experience about Altimeter data and Scatterometers

Nice lesson, but I found it difficult in finding the question, answer section. If possible the section can be placed somewhere in the lesson. Moreover rather than segregating different questions according tothe contents, a single page for all the questions must be present,which will be relatively easier to scar through. I mean interacting withother users with double.

it was my first Met Ed experience. it took me 3-4 hours to finish. (before taking the test i attended also Remote Sensing of Ocean Wind Speed and Direction: An Introduction to Scatterometry (older than this).Comparing the two this course is better because it contained more practical examples

This is a great workshop to learn about the use of scatterometers and about their limitations

The course explains the objectives in a logical order, provides references when it is needed and it is very enlightening. May be some introduction to certain comparison tools may be helpful.

This course was very excellent, with well-made contents, easy access of the subject and easy to undersant with the illustrated images.

this is a very nice course for those wanted improve theirs knowledge in marine forecasting

It is of paramount importance to learn the various processes and procedures of how ocean remote sensing data and products that are made available on our visualization monitoring screens are generated and used in Forecasting in order to enhance our forecasting capabilities and information for the safety of life and property at sea and adjacent coastal areas. However, few more elements still needs to in cooperate.

I strongly recommend this course to every marine forecaster. Thank you MetEd for this well thought out lesson. Thank you for helping me improve on my skills as a marine forecaster. Glory.

This is a very useful lesson for the beginners of microwave remote sensing. It introduces the fundamentals of radar scatterometer and altimeter. It also shows the applications of scatterometer and altimeter data.
