Exploring Meteorology Using the Internet

by Dave 'stormguy' Crowley

Purpose of Today's Workshop (finish)

Today's workshop will focus on using the Internet in the study of meteorology. You will begin with an exploration of weather forecasting. a wide range of Internet-based resources, from heat sensitive infrared satellite images of major ocean currents such as the Gulf Stream, to remote sensing data from ships and buoys at sea. Several curriculum modules which cover traditional oceanography topics, such as surface currents, salinity, and the marine food chain, will be introduced. As a result of this workshop, you will be prepared to implement Internet-based meteorology resources in your classrooms.
