As usual, a good tool to fresehen up and expand existing knowledge. I like the quantitative information (such as required threshold windpeeds or particle settling speeds).The only "desirable" would be a concise forecasting tip summary (like a 1-page quick reference with the key points)Implicitly it is of course there, and producing one oneself is didactically more effective.

Overall, a very good lesson. It may get a little repetive and long-winded on certain topics but overall a good course.

A number of the NWP products were difficult to interpret

This is on the job training for me.

I was wondering if the course was going to be updated to accommodate updated computer models? The models that are now available for use at the Operational Weather Squadrons are now the GALWEM Dust Visibility, GALWEM Dust Concentration, use of Tabular Extracted Model Run data; and Ensemble products from AFW-WEBS such as the Point Ensemble Probability, Probability of Visibility due to Dust <5 miles, Probability of Visibility due to Dust <3 miles, Probability of Visibility due to Dust <1 miles, Surface Visibility Reduction Due to Dust (miles), and Diagnostic Dust Lofting Potential (m/s). The MM5 model is now called the WRF model. The Navy's COAMPS model is still available for use and the Navy has aerosol products on the NAVGEM model (replacement for NOGAPS). Thank you.
