6.3 Weather, Climate & Water Cycling - Unit Overview
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

This unit on weather, climate, and water cycling is broken into four separate lesson sets. In the first two lesson sets, students explain small-scale storms. In the third and fourth lesson sets, students explain mesoscale weather systems and climate-level patterns of precipitation. Each of these two parts of the unit is grounded in a different anchoring phenomenon.

Effect of Environment on Plant Growth
Read the Fine Print
Rating

This activity demonstrates the effect of changes in the environment on the growth of plants. The plants are placed in environments such as high salinity, cold, heat, or drought and observe the different reactions (growth) of the plants to these conditions. Students discuss the desirability of breeding new types of plants that are better able to withstand these changes if they occur in the general environment. The objectives of this activity is to: 1. Plant, grow and maintain plants under different environmental treatment conditions. 2. Observe differences in plant growth between these treatments. 3. Compare the growth of treated plants with the growth of control plants

In this weather-related activity, learners make a portable cloud in a bottle. Learners discover that clouds form when invisible water vapor in the air is cooled enough to form tiny droplets of liquid water. You an accomplish the same cooling effect by rapidly expanding air in a jar using a wide-mouth jar, rubber glove, matches, and tap water. This activity can be conducted as a demonstration or by learners with adult supervision.

Geography of Utah. The Salt Lake Empire. Salt Lake winter temperature inversion.

The significance of -- Salt Lake winter temperature inversion -- is discussed in this media item extracted from the 22-part video series THE GEOGRAPHY OF UTAH, conceived and written by Albert L. Fisher, PhD (University of Utah). The series encompasses the political, cultural, historical and sociological geography of the state of Utah. It describes the activities, the land and the people. Much of the video material was videotaped on location throughout the state of Utah, giving the student and interested viewer valuable field trip experiences. === As viewed from the mountains east of the Salt Lake Valley, the seemingly beautiful cloud formations swirling about the mouth of the canyons are actually a classic example of a bad winter temperature inversion. When snow and moisture have fallen in the valley areas, followed by warmer weather, the colder air tends to be trapped by the relatively warmer air above. If no new fronts or storms arrive to scour out the cold air, then the pollutants generated by a populous area, in combination with the formation of heavy fog, result in a prolonged inversion. Visibility in the affected areas can be as little as half a city block, which was the case for this inversion during the early 1980s. From the canyons and ski resorts, the inversion appears as a "bowl of sloshing muck" in the areas below.--Paul Burrows, director of Geography of Utah [series]. ===
