Short Science Articles

So, you want to read some short science articles on meteorology? How about quality pieces on pollution, air quality and other atmospheric matters for your information and entertainment?

This article was written years ago to promote the now-dormant newsletter, Blowin' in the Wind.

Maybe you teach children…then get some ideas for elementary school or kindergarten lesson plans if you need them.

Now you can catch a glimpse of atmospheric research - you can get physical science articles to your email each month, all at no cost to you.  This is like getting access to free research papers in a sense, although not quite as intense. Plus you get a little bit of my sense of humor.

If you need a variety of ideas, keep reading. Other examples of relevant subject matter from these environmental articles might be upper air analysis. Maybe weather satellites even national or local weather radar.

Need some information quickly and don’t have time to wait for monthly issues.  Keep reading here, as I have a few things for you right now. If you are interested in weather, for instance, but don't know where to start, take a look at this handy scientific glossary.

Maybe you're into climate change science.  I have found Friends of Science to be a good place to find out WHAT the other 3% of scientists have to say about this and WHY they are worth hearing.  

 Future Articles

Friendly explanations without the need for a university education to understand them. See the Blowin' in the Wind section below.

In a typical article, this environmental and earth-science newsletter will present ideas to turbo boost your air research project and plant some seed for further investigation. Do you have papers to compose?  need to write a current science article?  Are you generally interested in a convenient journal of environmental science or technology?
