Interpreting Infrared (IR) Imagery explains how radiometers are used in satellite meteorology including such topics as the types of radiometers, and how they capture and present images. An interactive exercise provides an introduction to interpreting satellite weather images typically seen on evening news programs. Users can "adjust" the air temperature (and cloud altitude) and surface temperature ... Full description.

This applet explores how the thickness of a cloud changes the way it looks from a satellite. The image is in the visible part of the spectrum, and the radiant energy is a function of not just temperature, as in the case of infrared images. The cloud thickness, its effective brightness, and the surface temperature can be modified while observing the satellite image. Full description.

This applet explores how the thickness of a cloud changes the way it looks from a satellite, as well as how modifying the surface characteristics (ground cover type) alters the brightness of the scene. Students may alter cloud thickness and vary the ground cover to include snow/ice, forests, oceans and crops. Full description.

This applet provides a simulation of the type of precipitation that results from adjusting the temperature (dry bulb and wet bulb) at different altitudes. An updraft in the cloud can be produced in order to see its influence on precipitation. The precipitation types that are simulated include snowflakes/ice crystals, supercooled droplets, raindrops, drizzle, sleet, snow grains, and freezing rain or ... Full description.

This applet enables the user to create snowflakes from different crystals by choosing different temperature zones within a cloud. The crystal grows with each click of the mouse. Moving the mouse to a new temperature zone adds on a new layer. Full description.

This reference page serves as a precursor to an activity on fusion reactions within stars. It explains that in the evolutionary path of high mass stars, once stars are five times or more massive than our Sun they reach the red giant phase and, being unstable, they progress from red giant to supernova. While many of the more common elements are made through nuclear fusion in the cores of stars, it ... Full description.

In this undergraduate meteorology course, students learn about the Bergeron process of precipitation formation, precipitation types, predicting lake effect precipitation, and estimating the liquid equivalent of snowfall. They may respond to questions as they work through the lessons. A review question is available from the tutorials page. Full description.

This lesson plan demonstrates how a steeper arrival direction of sunlight causes greater heating of the ground. The objectives are for the student to realize that the greatest elevation of the Sun above the horizon is at noon and at that time, in the middle, northern latitudes (e.g. in the continental US or Europe) the Sun is exactly south of the observer. The student should also learn that the closer ... Full description.
