Simulation: Tropic Storm - LLNL
Surface temperatures and pressures accompanying West Pacific typhoons simulated by a fine-resolution climate model
To enhance the understanding of surface temperature and atmospheric circulation in the formation and enhancement of severe storms.
ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING MATERIALS
Watch >> Tropic Storm Simulation (5.2MB)
TEACHING NOTES / CONTEXT FOR USE
Use to demonstrate how surface temperatures affect atmospheric circulation and the formation of tropical storms.
Assessment is at the descretion of the educator and how this model is applied.
