Objective 03/19/2013

Describe the different types of instruments used to take weather measurements.

INTRO

  • Pick up worksheet from front table
  • WEEKLY WS #28:
    • If you did not have the benefit of the weather forecast on the news, radio, or television, how would you forecast the weather?

Weather Forecasting
  • Weather Forecasting Technology
  • Weather balloon
    • Carries electronic equipment into upper atmosphere
  • Wind sock or vane
    • Indicates wind directions
  • Doppler radar
    • Tracks precipitation
  • Weather satellites
    • Provides images/data of weather systems over large areas

Weather Forecasting
  • Barometer
  • An instrument that measures atmospheric pressure
  • One end open so air pressure can move the mercury level within
  • The higher the air pressure, the better the weather

Weather Forecasting
  • Anemometer
  • An instrument used to measure wind speed
  • Faster the cups spin, the faster the wind is moving

Weather Forecasting
  • Thermometer
  • How does temperature effect weather?
  • An instrument that measures and indicates temperature
  • Warm temperatures can bring humidity and rain
  • Cold temperatures can bring dry air and snow

Temperature
  • Isotherms
  • Lines that connect areas of similar temperature.

Temperature
  • Questions to Consider:
    • How do the isotherms help you to understand what weather is like in different parts of the country?
    • How might this be useful in forecasting the weather conditions in a particular area?
    • What patterns can you see in temperatures? Where is it typically warmer? Where are the temperatures typically cooler?
    • What reasons can you think of to explain the temperature patterns you notice?
