RSI Clouds gives your students the ability to explore the factors that cause and control the growth of cumulus clouds.
With this program, your students can:
Watch the cloud they've designed grow as a numerical model "creates" the cloud. Students can select between a variety of ways of observing the cloud and its properties; they can look at the cloud's inside temperature, where in the cloud water is liquid or ice, what winds are present in the cloud, and other factors.
Explore the concepts underlying what they see happening on the map through a series of interactive explanation screens.
Save the settings they used to create the cloud and comments about it in a private, password-protected logbook. The logbook allows students to reuse saved configurations, eliminating the time and effort required to reconfigure the settings.
The Teacher's Guide for Clouds is a PDF file than can be read with Adobe Acrobat. The version available here omits the answers to the questions posed within it; the Teacher's Guide you receive with the software will contain the answers.
