Weather and Atmosphere
Weather Wiz Kids weather information for kids Why do clouds form at different heights in the atmosphere?The characteristics of clouds are dictated by the elements available, including the amount of water vapor, the temperatures at that height, the wind, and the interplay of other air masses. How is fog formed?There are many different types of fog, but fog is mostly formed when southerly winds bring warm, moist air into a region, possibly ending a cold outbreak. As the warm, moist air flows over much colder soil or snow, dense fog often forms. Warm, moist air is cooled from below as it flows over a colder surface.
Online Activities: Weather Watch Weather Maker By changing the Equatorward Temperature, Poleward Temperature, and Relative Humidity you can turn sunny skies into the perfect day for a snowstorm. Interactive Weather Maker Directions: As you manipulate the weather, remember these two rules: The temperature towards the poles (either north or south) must always be less than the temperature towards the equator. The maximum difference in the two temperatures is 70 degrees. Investigate How Weather Is Made: Follow these steps to get extra insight into how weather works:
