what charts and scales do we need to know for this event?
for our notes, we have the koppen classification system, el nino, la nina, station models, the beafort scale etc., but I feel like I am missing something....

O_o You are missing something. Koppen Climate Classification was for, well climate, but I guess it won't hurt to know them this year. Same goes with El Nino and La Nina. On your rules it also says (aside from station models), Meteograms, Stuve Diagrams, surface weather maps, and since I don't have my rules on me, I don't know what else. The Beaufort Scale is worth knowing. And you might also want to know some conversions (knots to mph, etc. Remember that station models tell the wind speed in knots, not mph)

I don't know what smarticle13 here has done to our notes, but I know for a fact that I put stuve diagrams, surface weather maps, and the beaufort scale on our notes. I know meteograms by heart, so I don't need them on our notes- I would rather make room for something else.

the surface weather maps are self explanatory (as far as I know) because it was just an example. I know stuve diagrams very well, there is just a key involved.http://www.aos.wisc.edu/~hopkins/aos100/stuve.htm

Will the test be composed of information/problems that relate to the Earth Science reference tables? E.g., a question about the dew point with given wet bulb and dry bulb temperatures.

Should we know special cloud types like noctilulent, lenticular and nacreous, if so what are some good sites with info on them. Also, I'm having trouble understanding anvil clouds...

we have to know the time zones, infrared vs. visible satt. images, and heat transfer
it's probably helpful to know the local weather at the Illinois area where the university is
in our state test we had to know the current tempreture of the local airport without ANY info! :?:
