In the field of meteorology, excellent writing skills are of paramount importance to have a successful career. However, standardized tests indicate that the writing skills among college students are declining. This seminar will explore the most effective strategies and tools for writing improvement.  The principal goal of the discussion will be to identify the most viable approaches that meteorology students can undertake to improve their writing skills.  Particular emphasis will be given to the writing skills required to gain admission to graduate school and to become successful with graduate studies. Some of the discussion will also focus on the writing techniques most often employed in scientific publications.  Anyone wishing to seek graduate school admission or gain employment in meteorology should participate in this seminar.
