This two day advanced course builds upon the knowledge students gained in previously attending the Basic Marine Weather course, either this year or in years past. Some of the subjects covered in this course include 500Mb upper air charts and flow patterns, upper level troughs & ridges, wind and wave concepts & charts, and practical exercises using real-time weather charts. The instructor for this course is senior meteorologist Lee S. Chesneau. His extensive at-sea experience gives him a keen awareness of the issues that confront mariners. Lee is committed to teaching mariners how to make educated decisions based on safety and tactical considerations using readily available weather and oceanographic forecast information. Course cost includes reference CD, continental breakfast and lunch for both days.
