WEATHER

Annotations:

  • Georgia Performance Standard: S4E4. Students will analyze weather charts/maps and collect weather data to predict weather events and infer patterns and seasonal changes. a. Identify weather instruments and explain how each is used in gathering weather data and making forecasts (thermometer, rain gauge, barometer, wind vane, anemometer). b. Using a weather map, identify the fronts, temperature, and precipitation and use the information to interpret the weather conditions. c. Use observations and records of weather conditions to predict weather patterns throughout the year. d. Differentiate between weather and climate.

4.3.2 AIMS activity
4.4 Discussion

Annotations:

  • What is purpose of a barometer? Air has weight and air pressure is the weight of air per unit of area. Air pressure change is generally slow but when sudden changes occur it usually means cooler weather or revere weather. Air pressure is measured in millibars.
