Northern Hemisphere Teleconnection Patterns

The Climate Prediction Center provides online data of Standardization Amplitudes of Northern Hemisphere (NH) Teleconnection Patterns. Teleconnection patterns "reflect large-scale changes in the atmospheric wave and jet stream patterns, and influence temperature, rainfall, storm tracks, and jet stream location/ intensity over vast areas." This site provides documentation for the teleconnection...
AZMET Weather Data

The Arizona Meteorological Network (AZMET) provides air and soil temperature, humidity, solar radiation, speed and wind direction, and precipitation data from 1987 to the present. The website provides the latitude, longitude, and elevation and a map of data collection sites. Researchers can find hourly and daily raw data as well as summaries of weekly, monthly, and yearly data. Although developed...
MetService Learning Centre

The Meteorological Service of New Zealand developed this website to teach users about the basics of meteorology. This diverse site provides users with New Zealand climate information as well as educational materials on wind, temperature, humidity, and air pressure. In the How to Read a Map link, visitors can learn about isobars, highs, lows, air masses, and other common meteorological terms. With...
Met Office: Weather and Climate

The United Kingdom's MET office created this website to provide users with weather and climate information for the British Isles and the world. Travelers can find out the latest weather forecasts and general climate patterns for various cities and countries. Users can enjoy the satellite imagery of weather patterns for the continents and the earth. Residents can view animations of the latest...
The Bentley Collection of Snow Crystals

Truly living up to the title of America's First Cloud Physicist, Wilson Alwyn Bentley grew up on a small farm in Vermont, and had a love of knowledge instilled in him by his mother from a young age. As a boy he developed an intense passion for studying and observing water in its many forms. After spending a period of time drawing snowflakes, he began to take photographs through a microscope....
University of Wisconsin - Madison - AERI: Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer

Housed at the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (SSEC) at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, the atmospheric emitted radiance interferometer (AERI) "measures downwelling infrared radiation from 3-25 "m at less than one wavenumber resolution every ten minutes." Users can learn about the instrument's many applications including atmospheric profiling and cloud data...
Weather Instruments

This Topic in Depth discusses the variety of instruments used to collect climate and weather data. The first two websites provide simple introductions to the many weather instruments. Bethune Academy's Weather Center (1) discusses the functions of psychrometers, anemometers, weather balloons, thermometers, and barometers. The Illinois State Water Survey (2) furnishes many images of various...
Meteorological Research Institute

The Meteorological Research Institute (MRI) in Japan "is engaged in analyzing and predicting meteorological, geophysical, hydrological and oceanographic phenomena, as well as developing extensive related technology" in order to further understand global climate and natural disasters. The website features the Institute's nine research departments covering topics such as forecasting, seismology and...
A Comprehensive Glossary of Weather Terms for Storm Spotters

Michael Branick at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) developed this online weather dictionary for local severe storm spotters and groups. "Its purposes are 1) to achieve some level of standardization in the definitions of the terms that are used, and 2) provide a reference from which the meanings of any terms, especially the lesser-used ones, can be found." The website,...
CIMSS: The Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies

The Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) is composed of scientists from the University of Wisconsin - Madison, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and NASA who "conduct research using passive remote sensing systems for meteorological and surface-based applications." Visitors can discover the many operational and research satellites as well as...
