An AWIPS-based forecasting course for science educators
Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society
The development of the Science center for Teaching, Outreach, and Research on Meteorology (STORM) with the aid of advanced weather interactive processing systems (AWIPS) is discussed. The focus of the developed project was on modern, computer-based forecasting of convective weather systems. Some of the major topics reviewed in the course were weather map analysis, satellite and radar interpretation, principles of numerical weather prediction, and uncertainty and atmospheric predictability. The teachers who participated in the course were impressed by the degree to which weather forecasting incorporates technology into problem solving.
