This excellent learning resource, the Online Meteorology Guide, is provided by the Weather World 2010 Project (WW2010) at the University of Illinois. Modules included at the Website are Light and Optics, Clouds and Precipitation, Forces and Winds, Air Masses and Fronts, Weather Forecasting, Severe Storms, Hurricanes, El Nino, and the Hydrologic Cycle. Each of these sections provides images, animations, computer simulations, and diagrams, as well as summaries to further explain the rudimentary concepts of atmospheric science. An interesting facet of this site is the Archived Case Studies section, which contains detailed descriptions of memorable weather events such as Hurricane Andrew. Users have the option of selecting a graphics-based or text-based interface for each and every page. This resource is useful for K-12, undergraduate, and graduate students.
