View Resource Confidence Intervals

This lesson plan has students create a confidence interval based on the historic snowfall records of a town in Ohio, the data for which is available online. The class will calculate the mean and standard deviation, applying formulas to the data. The standard deviation of the entire data set as well as a confidence interval will be created. A student handout is available for download here in Word...

View Resource MY NASA DATA Contributed Lesson 4: Snow Cover by Latitude

This lesson is designed to help students gain knowledge in using the MY NASA DATA Live Access Server (LAS) to specify and download a microset of data, then to use the data to create graphs comparing the amount (percentage) of snow cover along selected latitudes. Students will make graphs from the data microset, then use the graphs to investigate the percentage of snow cover by latitude. The...

View Resource National Snow and Ice Data Center

Established by the National Oceans and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in 1982 as an information and referral center for glaciological research, the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) maintains data information on "snow cover and avalanches, glaciers and ice sheets, floating ice, ground ice and permafrost, atmospheric ice, paleoglaciology and ice cores." In addition to its role as an...

View Resource All About Snow

This National Snow and Ice Data Center website presents a variety of general information about snow. It includes a question and answer section, which explains why snow is white, and the difficulties of forecasting snow, for example. There is a snow fact sheet, a glossary for snow terminology and weather terms, and a photo gallery of snow storms, ice storms, blizzards, avalanches, and other snow...

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...
