Exploring El Niño
In this introductory-level lab activity, students first view a 20-minute portion of an informative video to learn about the operation of an array of moored buoys that is used to detect changes in the El Niño ...
Students explore observational data from ozone-sondes, TOMS, and UARS measurements to learn about changes in stratospheric ozone over the past several decades. -
Weather Map Interpretation
Students participate in a Gallery Walk to combine weather variables and create weather forecasts based on four different weather maps.
Tropical Atmosphere Ocean project - data display
This site provides access to real-time oceanographic and meteorological data from approximately 70 moored buoys in the equatorial Pacific Ocean. Data types include wind, air and sea temperature, ...
Global Climate Animations
This site features animations that show the climatology of the seasonal cycle for the time period 1959-1997. The individual frames in each animation show the map pattern of the long-term average of a ...
Properties of the Atmosphere
This QuickTime animation, with accompanying audio, shows how temperature, pressure, and density change with increasing altitude. Whereas pressure decreases fairly uniformly with height, there are ...
Glac Modeled Glacier Change Animation
Animation of Modeled Climate-Induced Glacier Change in Glacier National Park, 1850- 2100. The simulation reflects the predicted exponential rise in atmospheric CO2 concentrations, a 2xCO2 ...
The Hydrologic Cycle: online meteorology guide
This is a module from an online meteorology resource developed at the University of Illinois. The unit covers concepts of the hydrologic cycle including precipitation, runoff, infiltration, ...
Coastal Upwelling Animation
This site from Exploring Earth features an animation of upwelling in a coastal environment. It shows how onshore winds blowing along a coastline push surface water, which, when combined with the ...
