These lessons were revamped for the North Adams Public School System during Summer 2014 by Cindy Le, Dvivid Trivedi, Veronica Gould, and Katie Swoap. Atoll=A circular reef that surrounds a lagoon and is bounded on the outside by deep water of the open sea. Alluvial fan=A fan-like accumulation of sediment created where a steep stream slows down rapidly as it reaches a relatively flat valley floor. An organism’s habitat provides food, water, shelter, and space.

These balloons are equipped with radiation sensors that detect cosmic rays, a surprisingly "down to Earth" form of space weather. A major concept in science is that temperature is a measure of the underlying energy of motion of a system. Second, there is an infrastructure in the U. To bring the GEOS-5 results closer to contemporary numbers, I have added a uniform offset of +32 ppmv, increasing the global mean to 400 ppmv.

Archean Eon=A division of geologic time 3.8 to 2.5 billion years ago. During a hurricane, 90% of the people who die end up dying from drowning. 3. I am also available after school everyday including Friday from 2:30-3:10. Provides synopsis of the student reading, review of the leading question and learning objectives. Chemical bond=The linkage between atoms in molecules and between molecules and ions in crystals. As water moves through the water cycle, it evaporates from the Earth’s surface, rises and cools, condenses into rain, snow, or ice, and falls back to the surface.

In this lesson, students explore and verify that soil erosion is affected by the makeup of the soil using plant roots, rocks, and the slope of the land as experimental factors. Use a simple classification system to classify unfamiliar Utah plants or animals (e.g., fish/amphibians/reptile/bird/mammal, invertebrate/vertebrate, tree/shrub/grass, deciduous/conifers). Energy from the Sun heats Earth unevenly, causing air movements that result in changing weather patterns. b. Black hole=An object whose gravity is so strong that the escape velocity exceeds the speed of light.

Hazardous volcanoes are being constantly monitored real-time to improve the accuracy of the forecast. Plant cells (but not animal cells) have cell walls, chloroplasts, and a large central vacuole Plant cells tend to be rectangular, while animal cells tend to be spherical or at times irregular. Of visible light, violet has the most energy and red the least. Using this data, students will appreciate the importance of accurate and effective forecasting on the lives of local and global citizens.

Alternatively, weather kits will let your child play the role of a real meteorologist as he or she gains hands-on experience tracking and testing the Earth�s climate changes. Observing local weather patterns will help develop these concepts before expanding to a national or worldwide comparison. It has been said, for example, that a butterfly flapping its wings today in China could produce (or prevent) tornadoes two weeks from now in Kansas. This has the effect, though, of creating "boundaries" between regions of ocean where the #1 wave group suddenly switches to second place.

Geodesy - The science of accurately measuring three properties about the Earth: its geometric shape, orientation in space, and gravitational field. Dust and volcanic ash reduce the amount of energy penetrating the atmosphere, thereby changing atmospheric circulation, rainfall patterns, and Earth' s surface temperatures. Oceanography - The study of the Earth's oceans, including their chemical compositions, the fluid dynamics of how they move and interact through waves and ocean currents, the geology of the ocean floor, and the marine organisms that live within the oceans.

Synoptic meteorologists develop new tools for weather forecasting, using computers and sophisticated mathematical models of atmospheric activity.
