LECTURE: How Modern Weather Forecasting Works

A webinar from the Devon & Cornwall Joint Branch.

The Standards of Training Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) Convention requires a focus on understanding synoptic charts, without necessarily understanding how the forecast is actually created. This lecture explores how weather forecasting techniques have advanced in recent years and details how a deeper understanding will help mariners make better use of what is on offer.
