Atmospheric Visualization Collection
The intended use of this web page is for collaborative development of lesson plans. Several atmospheric science lesson plans and visualizations are available from this site. Examples of some of the topics are a snowflake model, weather balloons, a radiation budget model, and drawing contour plots. Many of the visualizations are interactive, so the user may vary the conditions and observe the results. These applets serve as useful introductions to the concept of modeling. The lesson plans receive continuous input and editing by the instructors that use them, so the quality is always improving.
