It is a very interesting lesson on how the weather phenomena behave in nature.
Arona 2019-10-04 00:56:39

Good refresher for those that need to return to the basics and sometimes reflect that we do not know all about the weather.
Caladh 2019-03-30 23:19:46

I thoroughly enjoyed it and thought it really good. I was unsure whether to repeat it and the quiz to improve my score or go straight onto the next lesson.
vziniti15 2018-12-01 10:18:29

This was great!
Extraham 2018-11-27 16:40:34

Well, I read through the lesson on mt first try and failed, miserably. Problems with the technical terminology, I think. Anyway, I took the course a second time, taking notes throughout the lesson. Whoever set the time period to complete this course must be a very experienced meteorological scientist and not a layman. Ten pages of notes and drawings and about 5 hours later, I managed to complete the lesson and pass the quiz. Phew. Anyway, I did learn lots and did enjoy it. Thanks. Tom

Well laid out. Could use interactive training instead of reading with animation.
vernon60 2018-06-20 23:58:42

Very interesting course I learned a lot about weather.
Rhaukare 2018-05-22 04:23:14

very interesting to read about those stuff. Need go time to do readings
russbryan 2018-05-02 19:12:20

It seemed a little advanced to be a 101 course, while leaving out basics such as barometric pressure.
SD.Agana 2018-04-12 05:54:19

This lesson is really helpful in my research field. I have learned a lot. Even this lesson tackles about the basic weather processes, it widened the knowledge I have in weather.
ckeeley1 2018-04-09 16:32:17

The question involving the pictures of the clouds was ridiculously confusing and it took me multiple attempts to get it correct. I need better images of clouds if I am going to classify them correctly.
Sellars 2018-04-02 17:48:13

Pretty hard to do all at once because there is a lot of information in a boring format. That said, it is simple and easy to understand!
ChrisPete49 2018-03-27 13:41:47

This was a more difficult lesson but very informative
averyulmer 2018-03-19 06:43:08

Great Lesson
Walrath 2018-03-08 09:59:29

This is a great course for those just starting out and for a refresher for those that have been in the Weather Career Field for some time.
2018-03-01 14:20:14

Good intro or review course

It is very important to know the basic of the weather processes for our daily usages and needs.
RustinaDTS 2018-01-07 21:31:59

I am an early childhood teacher in a blended and inclusive prekindergarten classroom. I teach many general topics, and read lots of books to the class as part of our lesson plans. I have been looking for ways to improve my personal knowledge and understanding of many topics, including weather. Through your Basic Weather Processes, I feel more confident in my own understanding of weather and weather related terminology, and thus better able to teach my 3 to 5 year old students. Although we won't go into such details, I feel that it is important for me to understand what I am teaching, so I can better explain and simplify those explanations for the children I teach. Thank you for providing a training that allows me to do just that.
Timm 2018-01-06 10:13:24

I have received much of my weather information (Skywarn) without receiving the basic information in this series first. It is very worthwhile to begin to see more of the "big picture", learn the basic terminology, and fill in some of the gaps
johannes.berdon 2017-12-30 20:50:56

As I continue to go through the courses, I find it very useful to my present career. I hope to see this course extended to the synoptic observers at the site stations throughout the FSM.
insaneraptor 2017-12-30 17:34:15

great lesson
qsack2003 2017-12-28 14:10:46

Good overview. Best if intro to atmosphere and intro to oceans are taken first.
kraigmorris 2017-12-27 13:51:48

I learned a lot and as I think videos would help. It was a bit much for me as I have no background in this but glad I did this.

Sometimes the information can be a bit confusing because some subjects are treated shallowly. Perhaps such subjects should be expanded.
Matthew Gordon 2017-08-27 10:03:12

Awesome Info!! 2017-08-15 11:05:53

I thought this lesson contained particularly interesting information that more people should know about. I believe this lesson is relevant to my work and studies.

As Meteorologist please be assure of this tricky questions and answers. Thanks
gutulikou 2017-05-16 17:44:42

this lesson is very useful, not only to those who want to become a meteorologist, but the students who might want to explore the beautiful the weather is. amazing!
Bloody Racoons 2017-05-11 11:19:24

Well , for me the quiz and lesson weren't actually related
cheese99 2017-05-08 00:41:09

Very good course
nivram78 2017-05-05 21:19:43

A very basic but a must pre-requisite to higher understanding of the more advance Weather Process.
Graycomae 2017-04-29 13:32:44

Needed a few more examples to understand some things, such as the different types of clouds and thunderstorms.
Iankel 2017-04-28 13:17:47

expand the explanation with more examples of the clouds section
Ronald Alfred 2017-04-25 04:00:00

This modules really help me understand the weather phenomenon.
BruceWA 2017-04-19 15:15:49

Very new to this topic; learning. More video explanations would be an enhancement. More practice questions, more interactive training in general would help.

rjaay1 2017-03-20 15:42:21

No knowledge of terminology other than what I've seen on the nightly weather reports and NOAA on line. Much more to it and for a first lesson a little too much.
dweeks 2017-03-20 15:10:59

nice introduction
jmklick 2017-03-20 14:00:44

Well organized, good graphics.
Shawn Hughes 2017-03-19 15:03:55

I thought it would be more technical than it was, and helped to synthesize some different pieces of weather phenomena together for me! An easy, short read, would recommend to the novice.
Iorhael 2017-03-15 19:16:18

A lot of information to digest. Some of it could be rewritten to be a bit more understandable to a novice.
tbonetoad 2017-03-15 08:29:32

Lima Juliet Charlie 2017-03-13 23:55:39

Very informative.
TheWxMoth 2017-03-13 20:39:54

I know they were trying to cover a lot of processes in a short amount of time, but it felt like some details were lacking or unclear. For the most part, it is a great overview, but I wish the Bergeron process was slightly better explained. What may be more important than that for general understanding would be to link some of the circulation stuff into the monsoons a touch better. As it is, a lot of this is a touch scattered and each topic kind of a standalone tidbit, rather than forming a general picture of atmospheric processes as I had hoped originally. I would still recommend as perhaps a review of some of this for those taking an intro to meteorology course, or an earth sciences course. Some with no background will do OK with it, others may struggle a touch.
gbodeimoleayo 2017-03-13 11:00:49

The presentation of this lecture is very clear and comprehensive. However, I recommend that the temperature range for the precipitation simulation ( should be increased from +5degree centigrades to about +27degree centigrades to allow users better understand precipitation processes and types in the tropics. Thank you.
gbodeimoleayo 2017-03-12 23:32:08
