New from COMET: GOES-R, tropical meteorology, AMS booth
Below are details of two new online publications available from UOP/COMET. Please see the accompanying Web links for more details.

GOES-R: Benefits of Next-Generation Environmental Monitoring
This module introduces NOAA's next-generation Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-R series, focusing on the value and anticipated benefits derived from an enhanced suite of instruments for improved monitoring of meteorological, environmental, climate, and space weather phenomena and related hazards.

Topics in Tropical Meteorology
Funded by the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF), this course will help meteorologists and others broaden their understanding of the impacts of weather and climate on public health, including the impacts of heat waves and cold temperatures, winter storms and thunderstorms, flooding, drought, poor air quality, tornadoes, hurricanes, wildfire, ultraviolet radiation, and other phenomena.

Stop by COMET's booth (#609) at the American Meteorological Society’s annual meeting (11–15 January) to pick up '07-'08 versions of COMET's MetEd Website Archive and other program materials
