NOAA Watch: NOAA’s All-Hazard Monitor

When the weather outside is frightful (or even when it isn’t), budding meteorologists will want to turn to the NOAA’s All-Hazard Monitor website. Drawing on an impressive array of weather-tracking devices, satellites, and so on, visitors can monitor a number of types of weather here, including tropical weather, droughts, volcanoes, earthquakes, and oil spills. Along with the “Weather Summary” map that is front and center on the homepage, visitors can also click onto detailed maps of surface weather and the current drought outlook. The site also features information about weather in space, rip currents, and harmful algae blooms. One can imagine a number of educational uses for the map, from displaying the map in a visual communications class to a basic course on meteorology.
