View Resource Assessing Climatology in Fog and Stratus Forecasting

This module addresses the local and regional climatological considerations and presents tools and methodologies that can be used to assess whether atmospheric conditions can foster fog or low stratus development. Knowing your local climatology and assessing whether it supports favorable conditions for fog or low stratus development is an important step in the forecast process. A number of...

View Resource El Nino Theme Page

El Nino is a disruption of the ocean-atmosphere system in the tropical Pacific with important climatic consequences around the globe. This NOAA theme page features links to widely distributed information. Includes data, graphics, forecasts, historical perspectives, and in-depth analysis. It is intended to be useful to scientists, administrators, students and the general public. Links include...

View Resource Writing Effective Terminal Aerodrome Forecasts

This module provides an overview of some of the applicable TAF Amendment and Conditional Group usage rules, as presented in the latest version of the National Weather Service Instruction 10-813 on TAF directives. It also presents a methodology for TAF writing and development that will lead to an effective and user-friendly product. The focus is on the ceiling and visibility aspects of the TAF....

View Resource Aviation Case Study: A Northern Plains Cold-Air Outbreak Event

This case study focuses on making a forecast and writing a TAF so that it best represents the meteorological situation to aviation customers. During the exercise, the student prepares a forecast for Sioux Falls, South Dakota. As part of the Distance Learning Aviation Course 1 (DLAC1) on Fog and Stratus Forecasting, the exercise applies concepts taught in the rest of the course, with special...

View Resource Synoptic Weather Considerations: Forecasting Fog and Low Stratus

In this module, several common synoptic situations will be examined in order to understand the processes involved in fog or low stratus development. Most of these are forced primarily by advective or dynamic processes (although radiation does play a role). A more detailed discussion of radiation processes is contained in the Radiation Fog module. This module is part of the Distance Learning...
