Description:

This site contains two classroom activities: one (Antarctic Weather Stations) that helps students see the link between wind speeds and geographic features, and one (Crazy Cold Air) experiment that helps students understand how air temperature affects density, and consequently, wind patterns of Antarctica. Three accompanying articles add to understanding of extreme wind conditions in Antarctica, including an online "letter home" from a glacial geologist, and two interviews with Antarctic researchers: one a high school chemistry teacher, and the other a climatological scientist.
