Abstract : File characteristics: Software (20 files). Physical description: 3 computer diskettes; 3 1/2 in.; high density; 2.0MB. System requirements: IBM-PC compatible; MS-DOS; FOT Multimedia Training System (MTS) Air Weather Service. The first in a series of computer-based interactive training packages produced by Air Weather Service for use by Air Force weather units. It consists of text (instructions for running and using the computer program) and three 3 1/2-inch diskettes containing program software that generates high-resolution graphic images animation, and text. The training package is in three parts: the first familiarizes students with the relationships between atmospheric variables. The second correlates these variables to atmospheric stability using the parcel theory and the Equations of State. The third and final part demonstrates the relationships of stability and moisture content with corresponding cloud scenes. An entry knowledge test is required before starting the lesson
