Published on 06/14/2005

Activity Overview

This activity is intended for my Introductory Meteorology class; an earth science elective intended for Juniors and Seniors. (It was orginally modifed from an Introductory Meteorology Laboratory Assigment taught to undergraduates at Florida State University.

However, modifications could be done to this activity which could easily convert this lab to a more remedial class studying weather properties, such as an earth science or middle school physical science course.

Before the Activity

Students should be familiar with how to use different types of thermometers and barometers, including a mercurial barometer and a bimetal aneroid barometer.
