In this activity, students will observe how atmospheric moisture moves by advection (transport by wind) and make conclusions about why the moisture changed in different parts of Oklahoma. They will view animations of wind and dewpoint temperature data, answer questions about what they see, and determine the preferred location(s) for the advection of moisture into the state and what region, if any, experienced increasing moisture as a result of advection.
