Meteorological Outreach

With support from the nation's civilian and military weather services, the Cooperative Program for Operational Meteorology, Education and Training (COMET) opened its doors at UCAR in 1990. Its mission was to bring the latest understandings and technologies to civilian and military forecasters. Today COMET offers courses on site and online to forecasters, students, educators, managers, and interested members of the public. Users hail from 200 countries, and subject matter has grown from meteorology to cover a range of Earth sciences.
