View Resource MY NASA DATA Contributed Lesson 8: Cloud Patterns in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

This lesson is designed to help students gain knowledge in graphing a microset of data, then using the graphs to investigate trends in cloud coverage over a given locale. Students are provided content-related activities to enhance background knowledge in cloud types, and then are provided detailed instructions on how to download data from the MY NASA DATA Live Access Server (LAS) and to use...

View Resource My NASA Data User Contributed Lesson 17: Analysis of Atmospheric Conditions for a High Mountain Retreat

This lesson is designed to help students gain knowledge in accessing current weather data and in using the MY NASA DATA Live Access Server (LAS) to specify and download historical satellite data. Students then use the data to examine the relationship between altitude, atmospheric pressure, temperature and humidity at a particular location. In this lesson, weather data from ground-based and...

View Resource Precipitation Type Applet

This applet provides a simulation of the type of precipitation that results from adjusting the temperature (dry bulb and wet bulb) at different altitudes. An updraft in the cloud can be produced in order to see its influence on precipitation. The precipitation types that are simulated include snowflakes/ice crystals, supercooled droplets, raindrops, drizzle, sleet, snow grains, and freezing rain...
