Abstract

An interactive Web-based severe weather activity has been developed at Iowa State University with broad applications to motivate student learning. The exercise uses an extensive archive of weather data emphasizing warm-season severe convective events and cold-season winter storms. Several variations of the activity have been developed based upon the meteorological background of students. The flexible design of the activity may allow for its use in K12 settings, or as a significant training tool for weather forecasters outside the classroom.
