Making and Recording Observations: Investigation 3 – CAP

SLIDE OBSERVE-3-1

In this CAP we extend our discussion of observing and recording weather to include using weather observations and analyzing weather patterns to warn us of dangerous and severe weather. This discussion will hopefully demonstrate the importance of observing and recording data and using patterns to draw conclusions.

SLIDE OBSERVE-3-2

The top image in this slide is to remind you of your recent experience observing and recording weather data, and using patterns to draw conclusions. The bottom image shows a satellite image made by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of hurricane Katrina in 2005.

SLIDE OBSERVE-3-3

This slide shows the path of Hurricane Katrina over several days as seen from a satellite.

SLIDE OBSERVE-3-4

This slide and the following slide provide examples of severe weather. Meteorologists help save lives by observing weather data and recognizing patterns to predict where and when severe and dangerous weather will occur. This allows us time to prepare and protect ourselves from injury.

SLIDE OBSERVE-3-5

This and the preceding slide provide examples of severe weather. Meteorologists help save lives by predicting where and when severe and dangerous weather will occur by analyzing patterns from weather data. This allows us time to prepare and protect ourselves from injury.
