Day 8 Journal, July 19, 2007

19 07 2007

Hi again, campers,

Well, you certainly had a full day today and as well as a full week.  I hope your team is on track for success.  Remember the portaportal guest login is CoralReef.  Sorry I goofed earlier.

Now let’s hear from you on today’s guest speaker.  What interesting things about weather and meteorology that you did not know before did you learn from Jeremy Wheeler?  Would you need to take him or someone in his profession for your project team?  Why or why not.  Give some specific details, please.

Have a good weekend.  See you tomorrow!

    I learned a lot today from the guest speaker. He showed us how a tornado was made and how people find out when a tornado is in the process. He can tell us the weather and best time to go get the treasure, but he isn’t needed for the voyage.He can just tell us the weather in advance and we can go and get the treasure. Today was lots of fun.

    I learned a lot from Jeremy Wheeler today. He talked about hurricanes and some stuff about tornadoes. I learned that tornadoes are come during some thunderstorms. He would also be great for our Dominican Republic trip. He can help us predict the best time to dive.

    I didn’t really learn something about weather persay I learned the name of some tools meterologists use. Yes, I would take him or someone in his profession on my team. I would do so because it would be nice to know what type of weather would be coming up for our mission. Like if a storm would come up we would know not to go out diving.

    I learned that it’s good for hurrican to come because they hold heat and take it to the north. No because he works with weather. That wouldn’t work with

    :0 James Wheeler was very interesting today. He told us some important facts about Katrina and Isabel that we didnt know before. He also told us about the way a hurricane starts and how strong it can be. Tornadoes can be pretty strong to. I think he will be a good person to take on our trip because he can tell us when a storm is coming and the things that are happening in the sky and water that we need to know about. He also told us about that Typhons. His job sounds pretty interesting but you have to go to school for a while studying science. 😉

    Your Friend,

    its ok that u goofed earlier ms.williford,

    i learned that tornados form by opposing winds fusing after rubbing up against the other direction of wind

    i would say that we would need him or someone in his proffesion to accompany us on our journey,because he can forewarn us on the information we will need to know about the weather(mainly our surroundings).

    Today when Jeremy Wheeler came in it solved a lot of my questions about how certain storms are formed such as tornadoes and hurricanes.On the voyage I would what someone like him to consult us on how the weather would be.It would help us because a storm would make it difficult to get the treasure.

    Today was great we are finally start on our final project. I learned about how tornados were made, what were the biggest ones, and how to try to avoid them. I also learned about hurricanes and how much they are like tornados at sea. I wouldn’t bring him though, I was hoping that the proffesionals that my team and I would bring would be more attached to the ocean or a proffesional that was local. But anyways…. Bye!!! 🙂

    I learned a lot about hurricanes today, mostly about how much damage they can do and how they start. I also learned that people are trying to prevent hurricanes, which is a bad idea because hurricanes and other storms are needed in the proper cycle of life.

    Yes, he knows the patterns, effects, predictions, and tell-tale signs of a wide variety of storms. I would take him on the voyage with us.

    today was great
    The Meteoroligist talked about tornadoes and all that good stuff. Actually I never knew anything about them so it was a learning experiance. I would take him on my journey because he could take his advanced stuff and tell us if we were in danger.

    Lets see, today our speaker told us a lot about tornadoes and hurricanes, and a lot on how they are formed and what happens when they read the radar tower and i learned again from Mr. Wheeler about the green screen, he says that it isnt as fun as it seems but i think that learning hand/eye coordination and i think that is good when giving a good speach ~especially when you have a powerpoint presentation~. i think that him or someone in his profession would be great on our team, but in the speaking of bringing him on the boat i wouldnt really bring him with us, but we would definitely talk to him almost everyday on and before the trip to make sure that our trip will be successful as possible.

    His name is Jeremy and he’s from Super Doppler 10,and he’s a meteoroligist. Today he told us about tornadoes ,and hurricans, and how strong and ,fast and and how dangerous they are. Yes I would because, he can tell us the weather and what it’s going to be like outside so we canbe prepared.

    I really like Mr. Wheeler his was a good speaker for the class. Sad thing was because I hardly look at the news I really did not know who he was intill Tiffany told me who he was the Weather man for Wavy News 10. Everybody got along with him they asked good question about his job and about the things he worked with like storm hunting and forcasting the weather. the things that got people off was the thing about cloud seeding. It help stop tornados and other.
