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.
Students view and analyze buoy, satellite, temperature vs. depth data to learn about ocean circulation and how is related to atmospheric circulation. -
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, ...
Paleoclimate Model Output Visualization
This site from the National Climatic Data Center features a tool that displays map images for paleoclimate simulations from various agencies, including COHMAP (CCMO and CCM1), the NASA Goddard ...
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 ...
