Tropical SHyMet - Objectives

The primary objective of the Tropical SHyMet course is to combine various training tropics related to forecasting in the tropics into one course. The course consists of recently updated training sessions that primarily deal with use of satellite imagery and products, although there are two lessons that cover an overview of the models used at NHC in tropical cyclone forecasting. Since the training content is entirely web-based, the student may take the training whenever they wish.

We invite all forecasters to participate in the tropical SHyMet course. Individual training sessions from the tropical course may be taken (as opposed to the entire course) to review various content.
