Weather and climate are approachable and fascinating. Sharing the wonder of these topics with others—by providing people with information and the tools to explore their curiosity—is an important part of a scientist's work. Below are links to some of the projects I've been working on.
Weather activities, photos, and fun for the whole family
Fun weather activities, photos, and history abound at WeatherDetectives.org. You can learn how to make a simple barometer, look for shapes in clouds, and visit the Museum of Weather and Exploration, a virtual weather museum.
You can also learn about my two weather novels--Kelvin McCloud and the Seaside Storm and The Weather Detectives--which I wrote to engage young readers with the weather through fun fictional mysteries.
Explore weather data from around the world
ErbWeather.com is a web portal to explore daily weather data from around the world, as well as climate normals from the U.S.
Weather data is fascinating and plentiful, so I wanted to make a simple way for people to browse it.
