View Resource The Elusive Science of Predicting Hurricane Paths

Huge advances in hurricane prediction have been made in recent years. This radio broadcast from the National Hurricane Center in Miami reports on the latest developments in hurricane science and technology, such as dropping canisters from aircraft, improvements in satellite images, and why it is still proving so difficult to predict the intensity of the storm. The clip is 3 minutes and 5 seconds...

View Resource An Evolving Climate Picture

This radio broadcast discusses how scientists' views of global warming have changed since the subject first emerged some 20 years ago. Topics include the nature of the warming process, once thought to be a gradual ratcheting-up, but now considered to be more unpredictable; the development of more powerful computers and more sophisticated modeling programs; the complex nature of the atmosphere,...

View Resource Collecting Weather Data and Keeping a Weather Log

In this lesson, students make daily observations of temperature, sky conditions, wind speed and direction, and precipitation type and amount, and record their observations in a log book. They will also compare their observations to those from online sources and analyze their data for class discussion. Follow-up and extension activities are also included.

View Resource Weather and Climate

This unit introduces younger students to the concepts of weather and climate. Topics include the structure of the atmosphere, the definitions of weather and climate, and temperature and how it is measured. There are also discussions of heat transfers (radiation, conduction, convection), air pressure, wind, and the Coriolis effect. Other topics include types of storms, larger-scale weather systems...

View Resource Science with NOAA: Storms

This website includes teaching activities that investigate hurricanes, tornadoes, and lightning by tracking their courses and measuring their strength. The site also teaches how weather forecasting is done. Includes background information, data, applications, and additional activities. Links to related sites, as well as a wealth of similar NOAA lessons covering a variety of marine and...
