ECOS 101 The Changes in The Atmosphere of The Availability of Clouds Analysis
Content requirements: The purpose of this assignment is for students to demonstrate their ability to recognize and interpret how weather and climate are manifested in various landscape settings, drawing from text and lecture material. Therefore, for each reflection paper, students must select a weather event or climate issue from a list provided by the instructor and write about it. Note that students must write their papers in the form of formal essays and in a way that demonstrates their understanding of the weather and climate subjects that have been presented in textbook chapters and lectures up to when the papers are due. Writings that do not follow this line will not receive a high score. In their writing, students must: Introduce what the writing is about, why it is relevant to weather and climate, and why you are interested in telling it to other people. Explain the scientific process that creates the weather event or climate issue.
The explanation should be detailed enough to demonstrate your understanding of the subject. An explanation like “rain is because of clouds” is absolutely not good because it is too vague and does not demonstrate your understanding of how rain is formed. Apparently, to write this section successfully, you should read and comprehend the textbook chapters and perhaps internet resources. Discuss how such an event/issue may affect human beings and/or vice versa. Students must include data/pieces of evidence/examples to support their arguments. The citation must be provided. You must limit your choice of topics to the ones listed in the syllabus. Tornado: clouds, strong wind, rain, hail. Hurricane or cyclone: strong wind, heavy rain. Blizzard: heavy snow, ice, cold temperatures. Dust storm: strong winds, arid conditions. Flood: heavy rainfall. Hail storm: cold or warm temperatures, rain, ice. Ice storm: freezing rain.
