What's in the air?
All kinds of stuff.
Let’s see what we can find.

Air - It's Above us and Around us! An essential and beautiful composite of gases and empty space, interspersed with awe-inspiring storms, dust clouds and other stuff.  Look up way, way up. What do you see?

Surprise! It's our atmosphere. Earth is covered with it. Miles deep in it. It's an essential part of our environment.  We're at the bottom of a light ocean.  

Have a look at this handy physical description found on the web:

What will you find here? All kinds of things…starting with


For an introduction to the complex subjects of meteorology and air quality, scan the tabs on your left or the detailed lists of topics below. 

Find out how our atmosphere is far more dynamic and substantial than most people think.  That's because it has all kinds intriguing phenomena.

Here, you can catch a glimpse of blue sky, lightning, sunbeams, a cloud or two, perhaps stretching downward towards earth, and even a trail of smoke or many colors. Invisible currents. It's all magnificent.

Maybe you'll find something more threatening, or completely unfamiliar...

I do not mean UFO's here but interesting stuff anyway. Here's your chance to learn a bit of the science behind weather, geography, the meteorological theory. And the technology too.  What kinds of miracles does Nature have for us?


All the things you can see, how about Teddy Bears?

Not too often...

It's all good...It's all natural. Or is it?  This website also shows you things we don't want. 

And Music? You bet.  See what else this meteorologist does in his free time.

Bad stuff indeed. You might define air pollution as the blending of foreign matter such as gases or particles into the air so that it harms the earth's surface, water and living things.  Sometimes we see fire, smoke and flames...

Contained and controlled

Sometimes we see traffic and industrial smog and we even detect odours. We worry about long-term effects such as climate change, ozone depletion, air quality and global warming.

There's hope, though...We also talk about solutions.  We can explore jobs and careers in environmental sciences.  Let's have some fun, too:  tell a few jokes, play a game or two and try some activities.  The list below and the fourth & fifth buttons on the left give you a variety of options to explore.  Have fun.
