A thermometer is a tool to see the coolness or warmth of a substance room temperature or air pressure.
†This page is on the tools of Earth science. These are the numbers of the 72 objectives that relate to Earth science:
1.2, 1.4, 2.3, 4.2, 4.4, 6.6, 8.2, 10.5, 11.3, 14.2, 16.1, 16.2, 16.3, 16.4, 16.5, 16.6, 16.7 and 16.8.
Barometer - a barometer is a tool that detects the air pressure.

Temperature and water vapor profiles derived from the GPS data will help meteorologists observe, research, and forecast hurricanes, typhoons, and other storm patterns over the oceans and improve many areas of weather prediction. The stability, consistency, and accuracy of the measurements will provide critical new information to scientists quantifying long-term climate change trends, say atmospheric scientists.
††††††††† A storm is a violent disturbance in the atmosphere. Storms involve sudden changes in air pressure witch causes rapid air movements. Conditions that bring storms often cause other storms to come.
††††††††† If you think there is a tornado in your area a tornado watch will be announced. A tornado watch means that tornados are possible in your area. A tornado warning is when a tornado has been spotted or seen on radar. If you hear a tornado warning, donít sit around until you see the tornado. The safest place is in the basement of a well built building. If there is know basement move to the bottom floor. Tornados mostly occur in tornado alley when cold dry air and warm humid air meet.
††††††††† Between June and November is when
hurricanes happen. A hurricane is a tropical storm that has winds higher than
116 kilometers per hour. A typical hurricane is 600 kilometers in radius. In

Fixing barrier islands, dunes, beaches and mashes can minimize damage from costal hazards. Evacuation strategies and transferring information to places about expected impacts and post event recovery are a good way of saving lives and money.
