Met 101: Introduction to the Atmosphere

Met 101: Introduction to the Atmosphere
grizgrover 2017-03-29 21:24:46

Made me apply many principles of physics that I know from university physics to the atmosphere. Those rain drops, snow flakes and clouds will look a little different to me now.
CarolP275 2017-03-28 17:03:53

I used this lesson both as a refresher for myself and to evaluate for use with students
sajivanandsharma 2017-03-27 20:36:35

Course is well designed
lbonura 2017-03-27 13:45:40

An excellently designed course that provides nice animations to enhance the topic.
rrod 2017-03-27 00:57:14

A wonderful introduction and refresher for the basics of the atmosphere. 2017-03-26 10:36:57

I am a High School teacher and this lesson would be great for an introduction to Meteorology course.
climapato 2017-03-25 14:06:43

Great information for beginners 2017-03-24 10:46:27

This was an excellent review for me, who is a weather enthusiast but not a professional in any sense. I would recommend this to anyone with an interest but no or little previous background in the essentials of meteorology
shilliard777 2017-03-23 11:10:11

Great introduction to the basic cycles of atmosphere and weather.
Greg Beach 2017-03-23 06:18:29

Very good course for refresher/recurrent training. Great introductory course.
mbkai 2017-03-22 10:20:43

Very good

A quiz that does not show which questions were missed and what the correct answer should have been does not lead to learning.
jmklick 2017-03-19 13:32:23

Very enjoyable. Thanks
davidebstrohm 2017-03-16 16:32:18

Excellent review of my past experience and studies.

I think that clear concise information will make this lesson clear and easier to read.
1mitchellmonster 2017-03-15 09:30:35

Short and simple, common knowledge that everyone should know, it is practical.
WISTHEBEST67 2017-03-14 20:07:16

Very interesting and enjoyable.

LotharIrausquin 2017-03-14 12:05:32

great module !
weatherman4 2017-03-14 11:28:30

Solid intro course that briefly goes over some introductory courses. Probably very beneficial to those just starting their learning of meteorology
tbonetoad 2017-03-14 08:35:08

The lessons are concise and well illustrated with good explanations. The user interacts with the lessons along the way to completion so as to not be taken by surprise at what is on the final test.
dawoodmian 2017-03-13 23:05:16

Really informative in enhancing one's knowledge of metereology.
Luna23 2017-03-13 22:47:51

Interesting lessons.
2017-03-13 21:00:05

I really appreciated this lesson even though I have taken (and am taking) numerous physical geography classes in college. The material is very well presented (unlike most textbooks) and enables the student to explain the principles covered with interesting and logical flow.
Valenmike 2017-03-13 20:11:13

Perfect starting point for anyone interested in Meteorology or any related field.
redmare 2017-03-13 14:02:24

Studied in school years ago. This was a nice refresher and well presented. The midstream Q/A was helpful and the material is well presented. Thank you!
jeffrey clark 2017-03-13 13:50:56

nice study
TheWxMoth 2017-03-13 11:38:16

Overall pretty good. This may work better as a supplement to a meteorology or related course than stand alone given that it's a lot to take in over the course of only ~90 minutes or so. I also found a couple of the embedded questions to be worded in a slightly ambiguous way (most notably the question about how much sunlight the poles get vs. the equator, alongside the one about which receives more heating. I'm guessing the first questions referred to hours of daylight vs. actual amount of sunlight and I read it wrong). I would recommend this both to intro students, students in a general earth science course and motivated individuals who are just interested in the basics of meteorology.
2017-03-13 10:45:31

I wasn't sure that the creators of this lesson had really identified who they were aiming it at. Some concepts were expected to be known (for example, what refraction, diffraction, reflection etc are) others (eg what air pressure is) were not. Some of the questions in the initial quiz were ambiguous - e.g. did they mean relative amounts, or absolute amounts?
Renegade 2017-03-12 13:29:26

Excellent presentation of basic information. The graphics were useful in explaining some concepts.
zadrach 2017-03-12 04:35:00

Practical and usefull as suplement for meteorolgy studied
chrismitchell 2017-03-11 18:50:45

Enjoyable, informative and well thought out and presented course
healyt 2017-03-11 16:50:02

As a youngster I used to receive weather maps from the Weather Bureau (before NOAA) and record local weather conditions. I knew my clouds and what they likely indicated. Lots has happened since then! I am happy to understand the dynamics of precipitation better now, and have a much better understanding of global weather patterns. Thanks you!
ham 2017-03-11 14:13:15

I am a ham radio operator and sky warn weather spotter. This study will help in understanding atmospheric principles.
sicel11 2017-03-11 12:07:17

i hope this will help all beginners
Ben49 2017-03-11 11:09:44

A basic lesson about atmosphere dynamics.
amaida1 2017-03-11 10:51:48

I have always been interested in weather. Not knowing anything about the subject I decided to take this course. I enjoyed it a lot and plan to others.
HEYRMAN 2017-03-11 09:45:47

gbodeimoleayo 2017-03-11 08:16:37

The lesson was clearly and well delivered. Also, the contents of the lesson is very appropriate and straightforward for someone without prior knowledge of the atmosphere to easily understand.
sblanton3 2017-03-11 07:30:21

This is a good place to get started. I think that MetEd should line many modules and courses into a SUPERCOURSE that covers Meteorological and Oceanographical Information and would be the equivalent of a "Introduction to Weather", Freshman level, College course.
Eggplant 2017-03-11 07:03:45

Great intro 2017-03-11 04:05:37

Very interesting and relevant material

i would like to hear audio
Chicov 2017-03-10 22:31:10

85% on pretest, 100% on post test. Enjoyed the lesson. Using for ham radio/NWS Skywarn project.
Agin Cajun 2017-03-10 19:23:19

This should be required study for all Americans. It is relevant to everyone. Any student of science, regardless of specificity, can benefit from this material. The lesson really begins at the beginning and should serve as a firm foundation for future lessons to build upon. Very informative, entertaining and captivating for anyone experiencing weather, and who, alive, isn't?
Abhishek2808 2017-03-09 10:40:35

Excellent and useful content.A perfect key to knowledge.

Wonderful lesson
pushkin 2017-03-05 12:03:16

I'm university student and this course is more didactic and understandable.
dean1984 2017-03-02 11:53:34

More reading material would be nice
r4fthrs 2017-03-02 06:55:29

Very well done, easy to understand and presented in a concise but interesting manner. Great lesson for a new student or as a refresher course.
