This is a great course, to refresh your your mind, and to learn the basic of atmosphere.
wkilthau 2018-10-15 15:00:07

Some of the questions in the lesson were worded poorly. Despite knowing the information prior to the course and using it as a refresher, some of my answers were incorrect because of how the question was worded.

This was a great refreshing course for me. I had the greatest opportunity to re-learn most of these things.
McJessey Leon Brian Beu 2018-07-09 23:36:26

This "Introduction to the Atmosphere" course has really helped me to refresh and it keeps me updated with the latest information about the atmosphere and ways the world is engaging in to observe it. I believe this course will always be reviewed and updated and thus it is recommended as a refresher for professionals and enthusiasts as well as new learners.

From this lesson I know variation of pressure according to the altitude and the cause of those changes. I know the hydrologic cycle and to differentiate his processes. i gained knowledge also about sunlight and visible spectrum. so think you for your short course because all those are useful in my daily work as meteorologist.
giguerea 2018-01-24 09:50:58

Just a quick refresher for me, mostly to check my meteorological vocabulary in English

Excellent for a rank beginner to the subject who is interested in learning more about severe storms or weather in general. Even Ididn't ace the pre-test!
johannes.berdon 2017-12-30 00:24:37

I'm glad I have the chance to review most of what I've learned in the past. It is indeed a resourceful tool to improve my forecasting skills.

I find this lesson a very useful and important task to everyone who will be interesting in studying the atmosphere. Such a great lesson!
AustinDE94 2017-05-14 18:10:57

A lot of this is about the simple weather that you learn in cool when it comes to evaporation, rain, ect... However there is quite a few things on here that I was very surprised by such as the life of a single water molecule. Has made me want to research a few things that I would like answered that isn't a part of this subject.

Short, concise and easily understandable for someone just beginning their understanding/education of weather.
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

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

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

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!

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.

499111 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?
