White Plains MetARs
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students examine a 'one week' MetAR to find trends in temperature and pressure over the course of one week in October.

Weather Maps In Motion
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
How do we interpret current weather maps? Students will observe current weather map loop animations. They will observe the movement of fronts and air masses. They will analyze a specific weather station model.

How's The Air Up There
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
How does the atmosphere change with altitude? Students will obtain current upper air radiosonde soundings from the web. They will generate graphs and analyze them.

Coastal And Continental Temperature Ranges
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Using climographs students plot locations using latitude and longitude, calculate annual temperature ranges, and relate unequal rates of heating and cooling to climate variations. Students construct and analyze climographs for two NYS locations.

Hurricane Ivan
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students examine, interpret, and map several days of NOAA hurricane advisories.

Climate Controls
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Climate is an area's average atmospheric energy (in terms of temperature and precipitation). The energy comes from the sun and water vapor. Students determine what causes different climates in different areas of the world.

Are You Kyoto Cool?
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will use past year's data to determine their per person CO2 production within their household. Students will then devise ways for decreasing their production. *CO2 is a greenhouse gas *Burning fossil fuels produces CO2 *Students can mak

Tiny Bubbles
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
CO2 gas is a dense gas and will displace oxygen from a tank. Air bubbles blown into the tank of CO2 gas will float on top of the gas. *Gases behave like a fluid *Characteristics of CO2 gas *Structure of matter

What's The Matter With Air?
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Use the concepts of density and heat energy to explain observations of weather patterns, seasonal changes, and the movements of Earth's plates.
