There's a question in the lesson on what data the drift models utilize and the sea surface winds answer is said to be incorrect but the description given after the question is missed says that surface winds are used. Not sure if I read the resonse wrong but it threw me off.

The module does not contain enough detail on any of the ocean circulation models to be useful for weather forecasters. Also, some of the links in the references need to be updated. The module needs a major update.

Very good exercise. Update on HYCOM since it went operational would be great. Some terms used without definitions provided. Example COAMPS. Perhaps a dialog box to explain. Check graphic on straits of Luzon reversal of flow. Unless I missed something, I think the graphic showed 9.5 North on the left and 9.0 North on the right, yet the dialog discussed the northern most position being on the right.
