This applet simulates what happens inside a house when the temperature and dew point change outside. The user of this applet has control over the outdoor values of the two thermometers (one for temperature and one for dew point). The relative humidity meter will instantly display the value for the outside. The user will learn that as the outdoor values are changed, the indoor environment is slower ... Full description.

This site provides a brief overview of the properties associated with the atmosphere, the thin envelope of air that surrounds our planet and is a mixture of gases, each with its own physical properties. It will help students to recognize that while ninety nine percent of the atmosphere is made up of nitrogen and oxygen, the rest is made up of trace gases that can have a large impact on atmospheric ...

This site provides a brief overview of the earth's climate, which is generally defined as the average weather over a long period of time. The climate of a region is determined by both natural and anthropogenic (human-made) factors. The natural elements include the atmosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere, while the human factors can include land and resource uses. Changes in any of these ... Full description.

These Java applets simulate warm and cold air advection in the United States. They allow users to vary different combinations of wind speed, simulation duration, wind direction, contour spacing in Ames, Iowa. Several of the applets also give the user an opportunity to estimate the final temperature. The results show how the temperature gradient would change over a matter of time given the wind speed ...

This Java applet simulates the energy intake of our atmosphere during the day and the loss of energy at night. Users can vary the intensity of the sun during the day. A tub of water fills up symbolically showing the energy intake of our atmosphere. At the end of the simulation students are asked to answer several questions. Full description.
