Advanced Marine Meteorology


Course Length: 4 hours

Course Overview:
Using the knowledge gained in the Basic and Intermediate Marine Meteorology courses, participants will learn to diagnose and understand a weather-related boating misadventure of their own choosing or a hypothetical incident. Surface, upper-air and satellite data will be collected from on-line meteorological and oceanographic archives of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The data will be analyzed to produce a 4-D image of the weather (N-S, E-W, vertical, time). Using this information, decisions that led to the misadventure will be reviewed and revised to avoid a future incident. Current on-line NOAA weather information and forecasts will be used to plan a future voyage.

Prerequisites:
Completion of the Basic and Intermediate Marine Meteorology courses or a thorough understanding of OPC/TPC surface weather maps and upper air charts and sources of essential weather information covered in the courses.

Topics:
  • Diagnose and understand your own weather-related boating misadventure or a hypothetical incident
