Toolkit: Teaching Hadley Circulation, Heat Transport in the Atmosphere, and Global Precipitation Patterns and the Distribution of Deserts

As a teacher of high school or undergraduate Geography or Earth Sciences, you can use this set of computer-based tools when teaching about heat transport in the atmosphere, atmospheric circulation and the Hadley Cell. This toolkit can also be used to address topics such as global precipitation patterns, distribution of deserts on Earth, Coriolis effect, trade winds, and the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ).

Climate Change and Disasters: Hurricanes


Simulate a hurricane and observe the change in its intensity as a result of changes in latitude, sea surface temperature and other parameters.

This simulator can be used as an aid to teach topics such as Disasters, Hazards, Hurricanes, Storms, Heat, Energy, Pressure, Oceanography, Convection, Entropy, Coriolis Force and Thermodynamics. It can also be used to teach Data Analysis for statistics students.
