LSOP Live: The Weather Show, January 8, 2021

 In LSOP Live, Shopcasts and Videos

What makes clouds form? And why are they white? How does the spin of the earth lead to the spin of a storm? Why do some storms make lightning? And how does lightning lead to thunder? We answer all of these questions—and more!—on our first show of 2021!

Check out this TEDEd talk from Brian, “What on Earth is Spin?”

Much of this episode is based on these activities — “Ten Things You Should Know About the Atmosphere” — which were developed by Little Shop of Physics with atmospheric scientists from CMMAP.
