Abstract: The Cooperative Program for Operational Meteorology, Education and Training (COMET) was established in 1989 by NOAA and UCAR as a broad effort to affect meteorology education and training in the United States. Recently, COMET has been involved in efforts to enhance meteorological education in Universities and Meteorological Services throughout the world.
This archive was created to make COMET ... Case Study data available to both National Weather Service and university personnel. There are currently 22 Case Studies available. Each case study includes a description/summary, dataset information, and sample imagery. The data may be downloded via the World Wide Web or ordered on 8mm tape. All data is available from the UCAR/JOSS Cooperative Distributed Interactive Atmospheric Catalog System (CODIAC).
Below is link to a listing of weather events that are covered in the Case Studies. http://data.eol.ucar.edu/codiac/projs?COMET
