GEOL 1304 (Introduction to Meteorology) – all sections
Weather Formation: “The Stories that Clouds Tell” (class and/or online activity) investigates the science and characteristics of Clouds and related weather in the Earth/Atmosphere system.
The investigation exercise involves a Hands-on-Approach to the Basic Concepts of Meteorology and Oceanography. It examines the science and characteristics of a cloud including different types of clouds and consequent weather types. A cloud does not float like a piece of paper in water, but a dynamic entity through which air is constantly moving while most clouds are constantly being created and destroyed. There are many things to watch for in the sky, and the clouds illustrated in this exercise are just a sample of the incredible variety one can see (refer to Attachment 1). You can watch a particular cloud for a long period of time to observe how it changes. You can also compare clouds move and others seem to stay in one place to encounter the fascinating stories being told by the clouds overhead.
Clouds come in many different shapes and sizes and tell us a great deal about what the atmosphere is doing in forming weather conditions. Some clouds can produce tornadoes and others are indicative of fair weather. This exercise on “The Stories Cloud Tell” is an investigation on what clouds are, how they form, and what we can learn by watching the sky.

1) Students work in teams, or on their own, to develop hypotheses, and/or ways to test them. Mastery of hypothesis development is evaluated based on evidence of reasoning, comprehension, and quality. Experimental design is evaluated based on applicability to the original question(s) and hypothesis/hypotheses, identification of all variables, elimination of potentially confounding variables, and proper use of a control group.
