  1. USING THE INTERNET TO TEACH WEATHER

  2. USING THE INTERNET TO TEACH WEATHER Christopher G. HerbsterApplied Aviation Sciences Debbie Schaum Applied Aviation Sciences Susan Sharp Aeronautical Science Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Daytona Beach, Florida

  3. Our Goal Instructors will leave with internet resources to aid in teaching interpretation and application of weather phenomenon.

  4. How do you teach weather?

  5. METAR TAF AREA FORECAST WINDS ALOFT PROG CHARTS STABILITY THUNDERSTORMS HAZARDS RADAR SATELLITE GROUP ACTIVITY? Presentation Outline Presentation Outline

  6. METAR Federal Meteorological Handbook No. 1 - Surface Weather Observations and Reports http://www.ofcm.gov/fmh-1/fmh1.htm Handy Decoder Keys: http://wx.erau.edu/reference/text/metar_code_format.pdf http://wx.erau.edu/reference/text/metar_decode_key.pdf ADDS: METARs Page http://adds.aviationweather.gov/projects/adds/metars/ Texas A&M Weather Pagehttp://www.met.tamu.edu/personnel/students/weather/ weather_interface.html

  7. Station Models 80 115 15 75 Interpreting Surface Observation Symbols: a quick overview http://ww2010.atmos.uiuc.edu/(Gh)/wwhlpr/sfcobs.rxml?hret=/guides/maps/sfc/obs/sfcobs.rxml Weather Station Model http://profhorn.meteor.wisc.edu/wxwise/station/index.html

  8. TERMINAL AERODROME FORECAST TAF Decoder http://aviationweather.gov/static/help/taf-decode.shtml Aviation Digital Data Service (ADDS) http://adds.aviationweather.gov/

  9. Area Forecast / Airmets, Sigmets Area Forecast, AIRMETS, SIGMETS Aviation Weather Center Official Forecast Products http://aviationweather.gov/

  10. WINDS ALOFT CHARTS NWS FAX CHARTS http://weather.noaa.gov/fax/nwsfax.html Upper Air Charts Explanation http://www.met.fsu.edu/CUDOS/rawin.html FDs Winds and Temps Aloft http://aviationweather.gov/products/nws/fdwinds/

  12. STABILITY REVIEW NWS Louisville:Convective Parameters and Indices http://www.crh.noaa.gov/lmk/soo/docu/indices.htm “The Cumulus Cloud” Applet http://profhorn.meteor.wisc.edu/wxwise/thermo/makeCU.html “Change the Stability” Applet http://profhorn.meteor.wisc.edu/wxwise/thermo/thermogram.html “Create Thunderstorm Cloud” Applet http://profhorn.meteor.wisc.edu/wxwise/thermo/tstm.html

  13. WIND SHEAR ZONE WIND WIND SHEAR

  14. Thunderstorms/hazards Thunderstorm structure http://ww2010.atmos.uiuc.edu/(gh)/guides/mtr/svr/comp/up/home.rxml Microburst - windshear and downbursts http://www.srh.noaa.gov/jax/events/windshear.html Microburst graphics http://ww2010.atmos.uiuc.edu/(gh)/wwhlpr/microburst.rxml?hret=/guides/mtr/svr/comp/wind/home.rxml&prv=1

  15. Downbursts Glideslope X Y Z The aircraft encounters point X, where it enters the microburst zone; a headwind causes it to rise above the normal glideslope. At the center of the microburst, point Y, there is a downdraft causing the aircraft to sink. The aircraft now enters the most lethal zone, point Z, where a sudden tailwind causes the aircraft to lose airspeed.

  16. Severe Storms Severe Storm/Tornado http://zuul.ncsa.uiuc.edu/arrott2/media/maxtornado.ram

  17. Frontal Dynamics Pressure Pressure Activity: http://ww2010.atmos.uiuc.edu/(Gh)/guides/crclm/act/prs.rxml Airmass Air Masses Activity: http://ww2010.atmos.uiuc.edu/(Gh)/guides/crclm/act/arms.rxml Frontal animations Precipitation Along Fronts Activity: http://ww2010.atmos.uiuc.edu/(Gh)/guides/crclm/act/fpr.rxml

  18. Icing Hazards Icing Assessment Using Surface and Pilot Observations http://www.meted.ucar.edu/icing/pcu62/pcu622/start622.htm

  19. Radar Meteorology http://ww2010.atmos.uiuc.edu/(Gh)/guides/rs/rad/home.rxml

  20. Satellite Meteorology Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) and Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellites (POES) http://ww2010.atmos.uiuc.edu/(Gh)/guides/rs/sat/home.rxml
