Project ATMOSPHERE Peer Training Resources

Following the training of the Kansas City summer workshop, teachers conduct two or more single-topic sessions on an on-going basis for their peers within their home states using single topic teaching materials developed by AMS specifically for this purpose. These peer-led training sessions, one to two hours in length, are offered on a variety of meteorological topics.
