Exploring Meteorology Using the Internet

by Dave 'stormguy' Crowley

Purpose of Today's Workshop 

Today's workshop will focus on using the Internet in the study of meteorology. You will begin with an review of the types and sources of weather information necessary for forecasting the weather. You will examine the instruments that are used to gather weather data. Then you will see how such weather information is displayed on weather maps and as real time data. You will then consider and discuss how information from Internet sites can be integrated into your curriculum. Finally, you will examine a variety of weather-related websites that may be useful to you in teaching weather. As a result of this workshop, you will be prepared to implement Internet-based meteorology resources in your classrooms and to assist fellow teachers in doing so.
