Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. ~John Ruskin

Himalayas Brainstorming

We will be beginning our study of the Himalayan region for this year's Asia interdisciplinary project in the coming weeks. The question is: what should we study? I certainly have my ideas, but would like to hear yours.

Since we are a meteorology class, we should certainly view our study through the lens of science. Do some research/reading about the Himalayas. How can we connect the science of the region to its culture? What is there scientifically that should be studied on its own? Provide your ideas - at least two - in some well-written and clear sentences.

My name is Mrs. T, and I'm a meteorologist. This blog is the joint effort of my meteorology class at St. Benedict's Prep in Newark, New Jersey.

We'll be writing about everything weather, from careers in the field to the importance of weather in people's lives to the scientific principles we explore in class. We hope you enjoy exploring meteorology through the lenses of a diverse and talented bunch of high school students!
