This El Nino site explains the abnormal warming of surface ocean waters in the eastern tropical Pacific and how it affects global weather, ocean circulation, and coral reef ecosystems. The activities involve wind direction and the Coriolis effect, global wind patterns, and cloud formation. There are sections comparing normal conditions to El Nino conditions and a video clip of the 1982-1983 El Nino ... Full description.

In this lesson plan students will learn the basics about how tornadoes are formed, and where and when they are most likely to occur. They will then study the current research on tornadoes and explore how scientists are trying to predict them. They will learn about the equipment storm chasers use to study tornadoes and will develop their own research plans. Full description.
