This Nuffield Working with Science unit was designed to help students to appreciate why the study of weather is important. The topic was planned to cover factors that influence the weather and the reasons why weather forecasters need to collect a large amount of information from a variety of sources.
Guidance for teachers and technicians appears in Teachers’ Notes E.
This unit was not included in the second, CPVE edition of the project.

HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
