The teacher recommends to the students a topic for the seminar paper related to the weather analysis and provides appropriate literature. The topic should be related with operational meteorology as it is possible. The topics related with Croatian territory have some priorities (e.g. Mediterranean cyclones) or the topics devoted to special applications e.g. in aeronautical and marine meteorology.

It is expected that after completion of this course, the students should know how to:
Critically analyze and compare methods and results of scientific work obtained by different authors.
