Title: Meteorology and Atmospheric Science Java Simulations
Url: https://pals.agron.iastate.edu/simulations/
Publisher: Iowa State University
Description: Provided by Iowa State University, the Partnerships to Advance Learning in Science: Java Simulations Web site contains several interactive science simulations. Visitors can explore advection, the energy budget, adiabatic processes, and radiation. For example, the mountain simulation teaches about adiabatic processes by allowing users to adjust various parameters such as temperature, dew point, mountain slope, and cloud base altitude. The simulation then blows a leaf over the mountain and moves it according to what was entered. Each activity has accompanying directions and questions if interested.
