For those incorporating
the Weather Studies Textbook, Investigations Manual, and Course Website
materials, the annual license fee is $149,
regardless of the number of sections or number of students.
Development for this course was supported, in part, by the National Science
Partner with the American
Meteorological Society to
teach weather your way!
A hallmark of AMS Weather Studies is the flexibility of course
implementation. The course can be offered using any combination of the AMS
Weather Studies textbook,
Investigations Manual, and
RealTime Weather Portal (course website). The course is
adaptable to instructional settings ranging from traditional lecture/lab to
hybrid to totally online and can be used on a variety of schedules, including
semester/quarter, summer session, accelerated degree, or self-paced study.
Course materials are designed for easy integration with
course management systems. The most common approaches to using the course
1. Use the full AMS Weather Studies course
package with emphasis on real-time weather - Instructors wanting to
have their students study weather as it happens may choose to use the textbook,
Investigations Manual introduction section, and Current Weather Studies
prepared twice per week in real time on the RealTime Weather Portal. A license is required. Go
to the Order Class Materials page for details on
having your bookstore purchase the Weather Studies Student Package.
2. Use the Weather Studies textbook and
eInvestigations Manual - Instructors wanting to prepare all materials
prior to the start of the term may choose to use the textbook and
Investigations Manual introduction and Applications sections. Website
material is commonly used as a supplement in this approach. A
license is required. Go to the
Order Class Materials page for details on having your
bookstore purchase the Weather Studies Student Package.
3. Use the Weather Studies textbook
and RealTime Weather Portal - The Weather Studies textbook is ideally suited for
introductory meteorology lecture courses in which students are not expected to
complete the investigations series. The RealTime Weather Portal can supplement textbook study with current weather data, Daily Weather Summaries, Math Skills applications, and other resources. Go to the Order
Class Materials page for details on having your bookstore purchase the
Weather Studies Textbook and RealTime Weather Portal access for students.
