Hey Gumshoe
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Investigate the change in mass of a pack of gum as you chew it over time. Have students compare their favorite brands.

Weather Analysis
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will determine how weather variables can be used to predict the weather.

Under Pressure
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
The following activities will give you an opportunity to see that air pressure, caused by the weight of the atmosphere, can produce some unexpected results.

Station Models Tutorial
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Individual weather stations report current conditions which are encoded on the map. This quick lab exercise will familiarize you with the information and method of encoding information on weather maps.

Station Model Lab
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Through this lab you will learn to understand station models used in meteorology by coding and decoding a variety of stations.

Pressure, Temperature And Mass-Relationships
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
A great way to "see" the relationships between temperature, and mass of air as it is being compressed.

Plotting Upper Air Weather Data
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students can use Microsoft Excel to graph how temperature and pressure change with altitude at many different locations. Why are the graphs different at different locations?

Isotherm Lab
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Isotherms help us to identify both warm and cold air masses. Isobars show areas of high and low pressure. In this lab you will practice drawing isotherms and isobars and locating air masses and areas of different pressures.

Great Lakes Storm
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
On November 10, 1975, a deep and tight low pressure system moved across the Great Lakes. The wind and resulting high waves contributed to one of the worst shipping disasters in the history of the Great Lakes, the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

Heat Transfer
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
A Heat Transfer Kit, two insulated containers (called calorimeters), thermometers, and an aluminum transfer bar make it possible to study the transfer of heat from a substance in one calorimeter to a substance in the other.
