Description

Alaska Mountain Weather Forecasting
Time= 2 Days
Cost= $500

This course's primary focus is on winter weather forecasting in Alaska. It will benefit anyone with a
strong interest in weather and making better decisions for their outdoor activities and will be most
beneficial to personnel involved in making mission-critical weather forecasts in mountainous terrain.
This course begins with basic meteorology as a foundation for understanding how the atmosphere
works. Orographics and how the mountain ranges of Alaska interact with the weather will be explored in-depth. Students will learn how to read and interpret all the pertinent weather maps and computer
models, with an emphasis on products readily available for Alaska. There will be map reading and forecasting exercises each day to give students as much hands-on experience as possible.


Most of the maps and charts we will utilize in this course can be found on the website www.mountainweather.com. It is recommended that you practice navigating through all of the Alaska pages to be able to quickly locate such things as: Satellite & Radar images, current Surface Maps & Upper Air Maps, Weather Observations for stations nearest to you, and also the Computer Models page, prior to this course.

Each student must have a laptop computer with wireless Internet capability. Using a large tablet is OK, if that is what you are most comfortable using.
