It has provided a good understating of land/Sea breeze

Its a experience because it allows quick understanding of the modules and stimulates reasoning of a person.I recommend that it should be a continuous process for even others in their process to achieve academic excellence.

How and why we get breezes is a question asked often by kids and grown-ups alike. This module starts off with the basics and builds upon that by pointing out other factors that influence the breezes in strength, direction and process. There is more to just a breeze than the fact that air is flowing from a body of water over land or vice versa. Breezes are as distinct as the geography where they prevail. We tend to already have a slight understanding of how vertical geography can affect a breeze, but this lesson also touches on the horizontal aspect of coastline shape. Prior to this, I’d never considered the possibility of a bay or peninsula contributing to such different patterns. While all of the animations and graphics were helpful, I struggled to comprehend the Effects of Surface Warming (Sect. 1.3.5) animation. It might require a legend or some simplified explanation for those of us just starting out. Another observation I had within this module had to do with the extreme detail given in the AFWA MM5 Simulation (Section 2.3). Perhaps this was a bit more than required for Meteorology 101. I went with 5 stars: The information satisfied my learning requirements despite added complexity. Perhaps the skill level could be increased, or a true Level 1 module be created.
