Description:

Mountain waves form above and downwind of topographic barriers and frequently pose a serious hazard to mountain aviation because of strong-to-extreme turbulence. This foundation module will describe the features of mountain wave and explore the conditions under which they form. Like other foundation modules in the Mesoscale Primer, this module will start with a forecast scenario and conclude with a final exam. Rich graphics, audio narration, and frequent interactions enhance the presentation.
