Learning outcomes - EAS 43400 - Weather Analysis and Forecasting

Students in this course will:

  • prepare forecast products within a working environment that is similar to what they will experience in a professional forecasting enterprise
  • use state-of-the-art tools for atmospheric data analysis to diagnose the structure of weather systems
  • evaluate the quality of forecasts using proper verification approaches
  • communicate clearly and effectively via formal scientific reports, verbal presentations, and graphical forecast products
  • execute numerical weather prediction models and apply known deficiencies in model guidance to produce improved forecasts
  • compute terms in equations of motion using real atmospheric data to quantitatively diagnose the structure of weather systems
