Description:

These animated satellite images allow Earth science students to follow the formation of a thunderstorm over central Florida. The introduction explains how thunderstorms are formed by the updrafts of warm, moist air. Students are instructed to observe the animation to see the formation of cumulonimbus clouds and to observe the effect of downdrafts on the storms. The animation is linked to a map of the United States that shows the storm's location. Movie controls allow students to repeat, pause, or step through the animation.
