I was thinking that since there is so much knowledge being shared around the forums, and with the nature of forums it becomes hard to maintain it and locate it - that the weatherzone should provide a "weather education" section that perhaps some of those weather freaks maybe able to contribute to and write weather education essays or something for the benefit of the rest of us?

Something where one person may write something - and then it gets checked over/edited by one of the Mets here and posted?
I often see the same questions being constantly asked - I know you do have a glossary but sometimes a more detailed expression is required?

Just a thought

I agree, Bolty. I reckon it would be a great idea. wink

When I read through some of the posts, I quite often have to refer to the Glossary to find out what someone's on about, only to get lost when I get back to the post.

While I have a real interest in the weather, some of the terminology and explanations are just way over my head, although I am learning.

Cheers, Helen smile

At some stage, I may move more topical and useful threads across to the Ask the Experts forum , as there are only about 10 topics in there (it may be an option to open it up to allow posts).
