This site from SERC's Starting Point presents sample Gallery Walk questions about the composition of the atmosphere. These questions encourage students to examine atmospheric and greenhouse gases, human influences on climate change, proposed new products to minimize UV exposure, and ways people currently protect themselves from UV exposure. The questions are organized according to the cognitive level ... Full description.

The site includes easily understood El Nino and La Nina forecasts. The forecasts are summaries of the Australian National Climate Centre's opinion regarding the outputs from various reputable oceanic or coupled ocean/atmosphere forecast models. NCC's interpretation may not necessarily be the same as the organizations producing the model output. Readers are therefore encouraged to follow the hyperlinks ... Full description.

The Fog Chamber exercise is an Exploratorium Science Snack demonstration. The activity shows students how clouds and fog are created with a very simple physical model using a 1 gallon jar, latex glove, a little water, and matches. The exercise teaches students how to make a simple cloud that in order to form requires water vapor, a cooling mechanism, and condensation nuclei. This site provides information ... Full description.

Wind surge is a JAVA based applet for exploring how water level on the windward and leeward side of a basin depends on wind speed, basin length, water depth, and boundary type. A mathematical discussion of how water behaves with respect to a variety of variables is included in the exercise. Students are asked to use the JAVA applet to study a variety of effects including the effect of varying the ... Full description.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) provides climate data for the United States. These data are primarily intended for the study of climate variability and change. Whenever possible, observations have been adjusted to account for the artificial effects introduced into the climate record by factors such as instrument changes, station relocations, observer practice changes and urbanization. ...
