A Comprehensive Glossary of Weather Terms for Storm Spotters

Michael Branick at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) developed this online weather dictionary for local severe storm spotters and groups. "Its purposes are 1) to achieve some level of standardization in the definitions of the terms that are used, and 2) provide a reference from which the meanings of any terms, especially the lesser-used ones, can be found." The website,...
American Meteorological Society: DataStreme Atmosphere

DataStreme Atmosphere, a major teacher enhancement initiative of the American Meteorological Society (AMS), is dedicated to "the training of Weather Education Resource Teachers who will promote the teaching of science, mathematics and technology using weather as a vehicle, across the K-12 curriculum." The website offers many radar, surface, satellite, upper air, and forecast maps. Students can...
Armagh Observatory

This website presents the news, events, and research of one of the UK and Ireland's leading astronomical research institutes, Armagh Observatory. Users can learn about the Observatory's many research projects in topics including stellar astrophysics, solar physics, and climate and meteorology. The site presents the long history of the observatory and its instruments. Educators can discover the...
AZMET Weather Data

The Arizona Meteorological Network (AZMET) provides air and soil temperature, humidity, solar radiation, speed and wind direction, and precipitation data from 1987 to the present. The website provides the latitude, longitude, and elevation and a map of data collection sites. Researchers can find hourly and daily raw data as well as summaries of weekly, monthly, and yearly data. Although developed...
BBC Weather

At this website, the BBC offers an array of materials dealing with weather. Meteorologists can discover employment opportunities. Individuals with spectacular photographs of weather phenomenon can submit their images to the photo gallery. Students and educators can find introductory materials on basic weather concepts, forecasting, extreme events, and broadcasting the weather. The website offers...
CIMSS: The Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies

The Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) is composed of scientists from the University of Wisconsin - Madison, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and NASA who "conduct research using passive remote sensing systems for meteorological and surface-based applications." Visitors can discover the many operational and research satellites as well as...
Climate and Radiation

The Climate and Radiation Branch of the NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center includes discussions on aerosols, clouds and the hydrological cycle, rainfall, and remote sensing. As you dig deeper into individual pages, you can find more detailed information on such things as fractals, GOES and MODIS instruments, and so on. There's a page to search for publications, and many abstracts are...

This Topic in Depth begins with a Web site from the Oklahoma Weather Modification Program called Cloud Physics - The Basics (1 ). Students are encouraged to initiate a debate on the controversy surrounding the issue of inducing or enhancing precipitation. Next, the Texas Water Resources Institute Web site, Does Weather Modification Really Work? (3 ) provides a more basic description of...
Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (CASA)

Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (CASA) is a collaborative project of technology manufacturers, weather service providers, academic partners, and federal agencies and is primarily supported by funds from the National Science Foundation. The research draws from electrical engineering, computer science and engineering, and meteorology, hydrology, and atmospheric science to study...
Dan's Wild Wild Weather Page

Dan Satterfield, a chief meteorologist for a local news station in Alabama, educates children between the ages of six and 16 about various aspects of meteorology at this fun website. With the help of amusing images, the site introduces the concepts of radar technology, tornadoes, lightening, humidity, forecasting, and much more. Users can listen to the sounds of storms, hurricanes, rain, wind, and...
