MetEd’s Weather and Climate Educational Modules

Note from the editor: The following is an email sent by COMET, a program within the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) that specializes in outreach and education on a broad range of meteorological topics. Listed are their newest “training modules”, which are free and fun to use and provide outstanding scientific information that can in turn be used to teach classes, inform research with ties to climate issues, or simply help one’s personal understanding of certain topics.
