LAB 2
The Geography of Temperature
Introduction
On your web browser go to http://www.wunderground.com ; this is the Weather Underground
web site from which you will collect data. When you get to the site you will see a search bar
entitled SEARCH LOCATIONS. In the search bar type Worcester, MA.
Tasks
1. Once at the Worcester MA page you can start to collect the data you will need for this and
forthcoming assignments. The data you are to collect are: Longitude, Latitude, Elevation, Average
High Temperatures and Average Low Temperature (also known as normal high and normal low
temperatures). The Longitude and Latitude coordinates as well as the elevations are found in the
upper LEFT hand side of the page under the name Worcester MA.
2. Now to find the average high and low temperatures scroll down the page until you get to the
History - Almanac block. This block should have the current date in it. Under temperature you will
see headings for Forecast, Average, and Range. You are to collect the high and low average
temperatures Part A
You are to gather the above noted data for 11 sites running from North to South. Five
points should be gathered from the North American continent and five points from the
South American continent. The eleventh point should be near the equator astride the
North and South American Continent. These data should be collected for the same date
and year. Note: Not all stations record Normal Max Temperatures so you may have
to search for stations that record the necessary data ( a good way to learn
geography). To find sites in a country type in the country name in the search window.
A map of the country will appear you can then select a region which will list a series of
weather stations for that area.
Once you have collected this data, you are to graph the average max temperature (y-axis)
by latitude (x-axis) in Excel. You will also graph elevation by latitude as well.
Part B
From the eleven sites you have collected sub-select three of those sites (one in the mid
latitudes of North America; one in the mid latitudes of South America; and your one site
near the equator. For each of these sites you will gather the Average Maximum
Temperature for the following dates: September 23, 2011; December 22, 2011; March
20, 2011, and June 20, 2011. Once collected you will make a graph (you can plot all the
data on one graph or you can make four individual graphs) with Avg Max Temperature
on the Y-axis and Date on X-axis.
Once you have completed your graphs for Parts A and B write an explanation of how and why temperature varies from North to South ( Part A) and over time (Part B). Remember, heat as measured by temperature, is a by-product of radiation so you may
wish to refer to your graphs from Lab 1 to help clarify you understanding of this lab.
Also what is the significance of the dates in Part B.
When completed submit your graphs and write-up in an submit as an attachment to your
assignment.
