On the test I just took at the Comet Invitational, the ionosphere included both the thermosphere and the exosphere, but not as a "real" layer... The Ionosphere was listed to the the left of the other two layers that it included. I think that seems like a good way to show it.

I was reading over the rules, and I didn't see anything about METAR. I was just wondering if I should learn it. I know being safe is better than being sorry, but I want to know your opinions on this. Thanks! :D

I would say METAR is worth learning. Even though it's not technically in the rules, lots of supervisors seem to like putting it in tests.

Really depends on the state/and event supervisors. I have never seen METAR on a Meteorology test in Georgia.

Hey guys, I was just wondering what the best online resource is for this event. Also, I was wondering if anyone knows how the different sections on the test are ranked. Like weather predictions and multiple choice questions. Thanks.

I'm not sure if there is a single all-encompassing resource. The [wiki]Meteorology/Everyday Weather[/wiki] is pretty good, and soinc.org links to a NOAA site that has lots of resources directed at Science Olympiad. Other than that, you may just want to use different sites for different topics, since some might focus on, say clouds, while others might focus on fronts. This will give you a more diverse background.

Also, a quick tip. You might want to put your image and the other information in your signature. To do that, you can click on "User Control Panel" on the upper right, and then the "Profile" tab, and finally "Edit signature". Then that signature will appear under all of your posts.

Also, I see you're from Wayne Highlands! Good job last year, it was quite impressive how you finished second at regionals. NE is shaping up to be a dogfight this year in Division B. :)

Are calculators allowed in competition? The rules don't say either way...
