Forecasting the weather is tricky business. You need a lot of information. While surface observations can get us a lot of data, we still need information about what is happening far into the atmosphere to make meaningful models and predictions. Thats where weather balloons come in. This week we talk about how upper air observation works as well as Jupiter’s atmosphere on Fun Paper Friday!

Built up by plates never healing

Too much strain cannot accrue
The rock will soon be yielding
