Teaching Tips

Graphic can be used to teach a number of concepts in meteorology and severe storms.

Go through the wind speed key at the bottom of the graphic.

Could be used in a weather unit as a dynamic visualization to demonstrate the interconnections among wind energy, Coriolis force, pressure, temperature, and precipitation.

The animation would be particularly interesting to watch during a major storm, such as a hurricane or cyclone.
