Tropical Severe Local Storms

Tropical Severe Local Storms 2018-07-18 08:34:19

A basic course but well suited as an intro to convection in the tropics.

Great flow of information describing the severe storms in the tropics.

Quiz material is not covered adequately in the lesson. Very Poorly worded questions. Would like to know what I missed, and what the correct answers were. I printed the lesson and could not even look up the right answers due to phraseology or your answers are wrong, but don't know because you don't show me what is correct. Negative learning.

I thought that the lesson itself was well laid out, however many of the questions asked were not explicitly covered in the lesson, they were sort of implied throughout. I would like to see the questions better match what is being covered in the lesson.

So helpful and easy to learn!

This module provided clear and detailed explanations about severe storms in tropical areas, their mechanisms of formation, and factors which increase their likelihood of formation. This module helped build my meteorological knowledge as well as my meteorological conceptual understanding.

Love to see videos and any more information

One of the questions in the lesson appeared to have no explanation in the text. Other than that, this lesson was a well-written primer on tropical severe local storms. It answered questions I had succinctly and was a great review of basic weather phenomena in and out of the tropics.

A very basic but good overview of tropical thunderstorms and associated hazards. COMET needs to correct an error early in the module where it states "As the atmosphere becomes more stable, the LI is more negative."

This course improve my understanding in thunderstorms (and its associates) that occur in tropics.

Very good learn

Although this was my first module on convective weather, I want to do more modules so that i can be able to learn more about nowcasting forecast and do it fot my country BOtswana as one of the developing countries.

This was my refresher course and I still love learning all I can about weather. For those who just want to know about the course, its a must have for anyone who lives in Florida. Thanks again.

I only recently completed the SKYWARN Spotter Training course and took this to add to my very limited knowledge of weather and storms. I must say that it has definitely increased my understanding of these very unique and distinct weather events. With no formal weather training whatsoever a few of the terms were unknown to me but the concepts were clearly explained so that I was able to pass the quiz with no notes on the first attempt. Having lived on the east coast my whole life and been through numerous hurricanes, severe storms, a close tornado and one bad direcho, I recommend this to anyone that would like to increase their understanding of local storms and how they develop. Thank you! 2013-07-22 18:09:19

Although this is a simple, Level 1 module, it is worth taking since it explains the difference between a typical mid-latitude tornado and a typical tropical tornado. I liked the part that explained how vertical wind shear and horizontal wind shear are two separate and distinct processes. I really enjoyed this module.
