In this activity, learners work individually to assemble a product and then work in teams to design, construct, test, and redesign an assembly line process whose product must meet specific quality control criteria. Learners reflect and compare the two approaches. <BR> Note: Page 14 is not in the correct position. It should actually be between pages 2 and 3.

This video demonstrates students measuring the acidity of water, using pH indicator paper and a pH meter. The resource includes a video and a written transcript, and is supported by the Water pH Protocol in the GLOBE Teacher's Guide. This is one of seven videos on hydrology in the 24-part instructional video series describing scientific protocols used by GLOBE (Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment), a worldwide, hands-on, K-12 school-based science education program.

The NCEP Real-Time Mesoscale Analysis (RTMA), provides current conditions in digital form on the NWS National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) 5-km grid. This product was upgraded in early July 2007 to the point where its use by forecast offices is now encouraged for situational awareness, creating short-term forecast grids, and evaluating recent forecast grids and forecast bias. Unique to the RTMA is an uncertainty or error estimate for some of its analysis parameters. These uncertainty estimates perhaps could be used to determine when a forecast is “good enough”. This Webcast discusses why the RTMA and its parent project, the Analysis of Record, were created, how the RTMA is generated, and its capabilities, limitations, and possible applications. The Webcast includes extensive discussion about how representative individual observations are and how they are handled by the analysis. The topics covered include: * The context for developing the RTMA and related future developments * Use of the RTMA in the human forecast process * The steps in generating RTMA products: forecast, downscaling, observation data sets, quality control, two-dimensional variational analysis (2d-var), “uncertainty” estimates, multisensor precipitation analysis, and GOES Effective Cloud Amount * Limitations related to how RTMA products are generated * How an observation affects the 2d-var analysis * Issues raised by the analysis using accurate observations which are not representative of their surrounding area * Preliminary performance assessment over complex terrain * Key changes under development for future RTMA implementations
