The meteorological refresher course is designed to update and extend the meteorological knowledge of experienced staff who are not currently engaged in operational forecasting.
Course length: 10 days
Location: Courses are held in the Met Office College facilities at our Exeter headquarters or at a location of your choice.
Aim: To update and extend the student's meteorological knowledge and, where appropriate, facilitate career development.
On completion of this course you will be able to:
understand and apply the fundamental principles of synoptic meteorology to analyse synoptic observations, satellite and radar imagery and basic numerical weather prediction output;
outline the principles of operational Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) systems, describing recent updates to NWP products and the limitations of NWP;
interpret weather satellite and rainfall radar imagery, stating their strengths and weaknesses;
combine the new understanding of theory, NWP and observational systems to explain current weather conditions.
