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!
Write us a geoscience themed limerick! This is a family show, so remember…nothing that rhymes with “Nantucket” Please email us your limericks by August 12, 2016 and we’ll be judging them along with Dr. Katie Schearer, an english professor. The prize? One of the awesome creations from Chris at Taylor Custom. Thanks for listening everyone!
The stress the fault is feeling
Built up by plates never healing
Energy release is due
Too much strain cannot accrue
The rock will soon be yielding
