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.

Dewpoint And Relative Humidity By
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Find Dewpoint and Relative Humidity using a psychrometer in the classroom.

Determining Cloudbase
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Find the base of clouds using the dewpoint and dry bulb temperatures.

Air Pressure Can Crush
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
If we reduce the internal air pressure of a pop can enough, the external air pressure will be greater than the internal pressure it will create a partial vacuum and crush the can.

Weather Patterns Analysis Lab
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
This lab was designed for students to use the Internet to gather and graph meteorological data using Microsoft Excel. It utilizes data posted to the net by our school's weather station and by the National Weather Service.

Weather Wizardry Of WESR
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
This project has the students pretend to be television meteorologists as they develop and present their own 2-day weekend weather forecasts to the class. You can use any oral presentation rubric to grade the presentation itself.
