COMET Publishes Weather Forecasters’ Module on the Caribbean Sea

gulfmexico_carib_thumbnailThe COMET Program recently published a module called “Forecasters’ Overview of the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea”.

This module provides an introduction to the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea for weather forecasters. It focuses on major aspects of the region’s geography, oceanography, and climatology. With respect to Geography, it covers major political boundaries, cities, ports, topographical features, rivers, and volcanic areas. The oceanography focus includes major bathymetric features, mean sea surface temperature and surface salinity, ocean currents, and tidal ranges. While the climatology section covers the seasonal climatology of jet streams and synoptic weather systems, extratropical cyclones in the Gulf of Mexico, and monthly and seasonal statistics of tropical cyclone activity.

Visit the MetEd website for additional information and  sign up for the module here.
