I'd argue that those two are mutually exclusive. A stations test is not able to go as deep into the topics. Also, stations or not is at event supervisor discretion. A good test writer will be able to write a test that requires you to think and give deep answers that require good analysis skills. I'd use this thread for asking questions about preparing yourself instead of criticizing the rules given that you're from Fullerton and no teams from Fullerton medalled in meteorology at Jeffrey Trail Invitational (which I wrote, and would consider to be a pretty good test)...

Stations don't really make sense for Meteorology imo. Also JTSO invitational meteorology test was indeed a good test.

Yeah, now that I think about it, the JTSO invitational test was about as good as you could get.

No she said meteo twice. That's what makes it so confusing.
