This is a self-paced, on-line tutorial where learners can identify and analyze jet streams using water vapor imagery from weather satellites. Learners are introduced to the concept and function of the water vapor channel and how these images compare with weather models. An optional embedded refresher tutorial with providing meteorological background information about jet streams supports student-centered investigations in three learning scenarios: a jet stream tracking challenge made by a TV meteorologist, analyzing data in a in-air turbulence scenario involving an airline pilot, and a decision-making challenge involving the launching and tracking of a weather balloon. This resource is part of the tutorial series, Satellite Observations in Science Education, and is the third of three modules in the tutorial, Water Vapor Imagery. (Note: requires Java plug-in)
