Weather Forecasting Test tomorrow. Please refer back to the post for 12/13/2016 for a list of topics to review. Use your journal and the science resources tab too.
Whew! The project is complete and collected. Study study study for Tuesday's Weather Forecasting test.
It's finally here! Topics chosen on October 21 and final project due eight weeks later on December 16 - tomorrow please do not leave your project at home! Bring it to school! We will not only receive a test grade on these, but also use them to teach each other about severe weather.
We did not check the smog article today, but we will tomorrow. It should be taped in your journal.
Please complete the class notes on TOC 18 greenhouse gases, and the half sheet of questions about smog on TOC 19. The articles to read are on the weebly. I will not be checking the notes, but I WILL check the half sheet about the articles. (So if practice runs late - skip the notes and just read the articles/answer the questions. You can go back and fill in notes later!)
Please review Weather TOC's 5-18. The Weather Forecasting Test (30 questions) next Tuesday includes questions about air pressure systems, isobars, precipitation, fronts, weather symbols and station models, wind direction, Doppler radar, the jet stream, air masses, meteorologists, weather measuring tools, tornado watch vs. warning, cloud types, water cycle, land and sea breezes, and what causes wind,.
Complete the sea breezes and land breezes notes and diagram from class today on TOC 17. The climate.ncsu.edu site is on the resources page.
Students should log in to Discovery Education and watch the rest of "Wonders of Weather". Take any notes you wish to from the rest of section 1, and then fill in the half page of notes for the other sections about severe weather in the video. TOC 16
Students should use the information in the Coriolis Effect resources section to view the 3 videos and read the article - both the Coriolis effect page and the geostrophic wind page (look for this in the left hand column). The article cannot be found as a copy paste, but as a copy, paste into a search engine. Select the first option of the search.
The videos may also be found on you tube by searching for the Coriolis Effect and choosing the National Geographic video, then the NOVA PBS video, and finally The Science Asylum video.
Bring ear buds to hear the Coriolis effect videos tomorrow in class.
