1 USING THE INTERNET TO TEACH WEATHER

2 Christopher G. Herbster Applied Aviation Sciences Debbie Schaum Applied Aviation Sciences Susan Sharp Aeronautical Science Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Daytona Beach, Florida

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

4 How do you teach weather?

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

6 Federal Meteorological Handbook No. 1 - Surface Weather Observations and Reports Handy Decoder Keys: ADDS: METARs Page Texas A&M Weather Page Texas A&M Weather Page weather_interface.html METAR

7 Interpreting Surface Observation Symbols: a quick overview des/maps/sfc/obs/sfcobs.rxml Weather Station Model Station Models

8 TAF Decoder Aviation Digital Data Service (ADDS ) TERMINAL AERODROME FORECAST

9 Area ForecastArea Forecast, AIRMETS, SIGMETSAIRMETS, SIGMETS Aviation Weather Center Official Forecast Products Area Forecast / Airmets, Sigmets

10 CHARTS NWS FAX CHARTS Upper Air Charts Explanation FDs Winds and Temps Aloft WINDS ALOFT

11 PROG CHARTS Low Level SIGWX Progs

12 NWS Louisville: Convective Parameters and Indices The Cumulus Cloud Applet Change the Stability Applet Create Thunderstorm Cloud Applet STABILITY REVIEW

13 WIND SHEAR ZONE WIND WIND SHEAR

14 Thunderstorms/hazards Thunderstorm structure Microburst - windshear and downbursts Microburst graphics omp/wind/home.rxml&prv=1

15 Glideslope X 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. Y Z Downbursts

16 Severe Storms Severe Storm/Tornado

17 Pressure Pressure Activity: Airmass Air Masses Activity: Frontal animations Precipitation Along Fronts Activity: Frontal Dynamics

18 Icing Assessment Using Surface and Pilot Observations Icing Hazards

19 Radar Meteorology

20 Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) and Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellites (POES) Satellite Meteorology

21 Food for thought

22 The End!
