Description:

This animation shows Earth science students how jet streams drive the movement of water vapor in the atmosphere. The introduction explains how the infrared images were taken from a satellite positioned about 8 kilometers above the Earth's surface. Students are instructed to observe how the jet streams (indicated by dark areas) are juxtaposed against areas of dense water vapor (indicated by light areas). Movie controls allow students to repeat, pause, or step through the animation, which can give students more time to analyze the images. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
