This publication gives students and teachers valuable information on the Arctic. Topics like Synoptic meteorology, Arctic Climate, and the difference between weather and climate is discussed in the introductory part section of the page. The next section focuses on the factors that affect weather and climate, like latitude, sea level, air pressure, air temperature, and wind. The following section discusses weather patterns such as cyclones, feedback loops, and the polar vortex. A very useful tool on this website is the glossary, which has definitions for all the terms related to climate and weather. There is a gallery on the arctic and life there, as well as a detailed map of the arctic.
