Radar Meteorology for Forecasters


Version 1.1
Eumetcal Working Group Radar


This is a syllabus for radar meteorology courses for weather forecasters. The syllabus is organized in a classical textbook manner, starting from systems and ending in present and future applications. However, it is often more motivating to organize actual courses from viewpoint of the forecaster’s actual job: what are the competencies she/he needs in her daily work, and how can they be achieved. Thus we have put most emphasis in planning the chapters 6-7, and suggest that the others are used as background material linked to these.

You will find the chapters of this syllabus as separate articles related to the structure of the syllabus.
