Purpose:

To discover how the relative temperatures and movements of air masses affect the weather.

Hypothesis:

Make a hypothesis about each of the following questions:

1. How will the magnitude of temperature difference between air masses affect the type of weather?

2. How will the air mass that is moving affect the type of weather?

3. What happens to the chance of precipitation as the temperature and dewpoint get farther apart?

Experimental

1. Use Weather Maker Simulation to answer question one by experimentation:

Independent Variable:

Dependent Variable:

Control Variable:

Data Table:

Conclusion:

2. Use Weather Maker Simulation to answer question two by experimentation:

Independent Variable:

Dependent Variable:

Control Variable:

Data Table:

Conclusion:

3. Use the Precipitation Type Simulator to answer the third question.

Independent Variable:

Dependent Variable:

Control Variable:

Data Table:

Conclusion:

Lesson

When you are finished with the experiments, work your way through the Weather Fronts Lesson.

1. What is a front?

2. What do you look for when trying to find a front on a weather map?

3. Insert a screenshot of a weather map key.

4. What happens when the two air masses meet in a warm front?

5. What type of weather is associated with cold fronts?

6. After you do the drag and drop activity, paste a screenshot of your work here:

7. What causes air masses to move?
