Page 1: Construct an engaging initial post that ties one or a combination of the following weather features to aviation operations: wind, fog, a particular cloud type, a particular precipitation type, a warm front or cold front, or a thunderstorm. Your post should include the following: Outline a general definition and description of the weather feature(s), referencing this modules readings and mini-lectures, as appropriate. Summarize one or more impacts of the weather feature(s) to aviation operations. You have two options for this part of your discussion: Provide a real example, from an article or documented report (aircraft incidents or accidents, for example), of the aviation impact of this weather element. Give us your take on the relevance and importance of this topic from your own perspective, by providing personal points of view or related experiences. Embed at least one graphic or video that helps visualize some aspect of your initial post discussion. To embed a YouTube video, simply paste the video URL into your post. To embed images from the web directly into the discussion post, review the Canvas resource, How do I embed an image in a discussion reply as a student? (Canvas Community) (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.)If you have trouble embedding the image into your post, you can simply insert the image URL directly into your post. Reply Posts Respond to at least two posts of your instructor or peers. Each response should add thoughtfully and substantively to the discussion, by covering two or more of the following areas: Elaborate with additional factual details from the module content or external resources. Provide an alternate perspective. Share a related experience (personal or professional). Ask a related question.
