Weather and ClimateStreaming Video - 2010
To predict weather and understand climates, researchers use physics, environmental science, mathematics, and information technology to interpret huge amounts of oceanic, atmospheric, and terrestrial data. Filmed with the assistance of Australia's Bureau of Meteorology, this program introduces the allied sciences of meteorology and climatology. After explaining how the sun, wind, and clouds interact to create weather, the video explains how scientific tools-from barometers and anemometers, to weather radar and deep-sea profiling floats, to ozonesondes and satellites-operate. Natural disaster tracking is also discussed, as is the depletion of the ozone layer.
