Weather Studies Investigations Manual
- Investigations lead students through the analysis and interpretation of real-world weather data
- Two investigations per textbook chapter, a total of 30 lab-related investigations
- Each investigation is self-contained in the manual, or may be completed using Current Weather Studies on the RealTime Weather Portal
As each Investigations Manual activity is self-contained, course materials are available to instructors in their entirety prior to the beginning of a term.
Instructors wanting to have their students study weather as it happens may choose to use the Manual introduction section plus Current Weather Studies prepared weekly on the RealTime Weather Portal. View this year's schedule for Current Weather Studies.
Selected authorship, edits, and contributions provided by DataStreme Lead Instructor and Curriculum Development Coordinator, Chad Kauffman, Ph.D.
Orders for the Weather Studies eInvestigations Manual and/or other course materials should be placed through your college bookstore. Go to the Order Class Materials page for details. Students can also place orders directly through the AMSEDU Bookstore.
If you are a faculty member interested in using the Weather Studies materials in a current or future course offering, please request an examination copy of the digital Textbook, eInvestigations Manual, and RealTime Weather Portal.
