The AVC collection provides materials that facilitate research and learning about the atmosphere through visualization of atmospheric data. The collection provides access to an archive of data from the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) program's Southern Great Plains (SGP), North Slope of Alaska (NSA), and Tropic West Pacific (TWP) sites. Educational material such as lesson plans and conceptual models based on these data are part of the collection. The data archive focuses on remote sensing related to the effects and interactions of sunlight, radiant energy, clouds, temperature, weather and climate. The collection website is translated into French, German, Japanese, Korean, Italian, Spanish, Chinese and Portuguese.
Collection is intended for:
Middle (6-8), High (9-12), College (13-14), College (15-16), Graduate / Professional
