The Global Climate Animations site contains animations of the Earth's climate system for educational and research purposes. The animations show the climatology of the seasonal cycle for selected climate variables for the time period 1959-1997, based on data from the NCEP/NCAR 40-Year Reanalysis Project. The individual frames in each animation show the map pattern of the long-term monthly averages ... Full description.

This applet simulates the difficult concepts of adiabatic processes. A leaf visually symbolizes a parcel of air rising over a mountain. Users are allowed to vary the beginning temperature and vapor-pressure of the parcel of air, and the relative wind speed as it moves up and over a mountain. Graphs then display temperature verus altitude and vapor pressure as the leaf rises and falls. A series of ... 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.
