SAMRA Notes

The main study guide for studying the SAMRA and SARON exams is the TP 690E/F. This guide is located here.

Below are the topics which are fairly common to see on the SAMRA. For the ease of reading and making a point, we have taken the format of Transport Canada's written examination results forms.

-­‐    Decode a GFA 

-­‐    Describe the characteristics of HF Radio x2 

-­‐    Describe the weather associated with passage of a cold front 

-­‐    Identify the causes of fog 

-­‐    Identify the conditions associated with the stage of a thunderstorm 

-­‐    Identify weather radar scanning techniques 

-­‐    Recall appropriate transponder codes 

-­‐    Recall cloud types associated with mountain waves 

-­‐    Recall the divisions of the atmosphere and their characteristics 

-­‐    Recall the effect of seasons on air masses 

-­‐    Recall the requirements for all types of fog formation 

-­‐    Recall VOR limitations  

-­‐    Recall where supercooled water droplets can develop. 

-­‐    Calculate the expected temperature at altitude given the dry and saturated adiabatic lapse rates 

-­‐    Explain the mechanisms of fog formation 

-­‐    Identify where jet streams are most likely to occur  

-­‐    Identify where nocturnal jet streams are most likely to occur  

-­‐    Interpret a significant weather chart
