Title: Windchill: Frequently Asked Questions, Terms and Definitions
Url: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/windchill/
Publisher: United States. National Weather Service
Description: This resource introduces students to the concept of windchill, the temperature of windless air that would have the same effect on exposed human skin as a given combination of wind speed and air temperature. Materials include a discussion of the new, more accurate formula, a downloadable brochure that answers basic questions about windchill, frostbite, and hypothermia, and the newly revised chart for determining windchill (also downloadable). There is also a comparison chart showing the difference between the old and new windchill formulas, and an online calculator that allows users to enter air temperature and wind speed to obtain the windchill value.
