The hazards associated with convective systems present some of the most dangerous conditions encountered by aircraft, and pose many challenges to aviation operations.
Published: 26 December 2013
When convection is forecast to develop, aviation forecasters are required to issue a series of warning messages, and other meteorological aeronautical products, to various members of the aviation community.
This lesson teaches these forecasters how to produce the products, using a case study in which learners assume the role of aeronautical forecaster on duty at the airport in Niamey, Niger on a night when convection develops. The lesson is one of three aviation weather case studies developed by the ASMET team to improve aviation forecasting in Africa.
