    Here are some helpful reminders for today:
    Most of your grade comes from putting plenty of information down. While pictures and videos are cool, they are only meant to ENHANCE your wiki.
    Make sure to SAVE every 15 minutes in case something happens to your computer or the electricity might go out.
    Include the URL (internet address) of ALL websites used for information at the bottom of your wiki.
    Your wiki needs to be formatted properly. This means that you need to use appropriate headings/titles along with horizontal lines underneath them.
    Mr. Brooks can see EXACTLY how much effort you put into your wiki each time you go into the lab by checking the "History" of your wiki. Make sure you are working diligently!
    Mr. Brooks can EASILY check for plagiarism (cue lots of whining). Plagiarism Checker
    Happy Wiki-ing! :-)

    Mr. Brooks's Science Wiki
    Welcome to Mr. Brooks's science wiki. Together we will create a wealth of scientific knowledge! Your goal over these 9 weeks is to pick a topic of interest in Earth science and become an "expert" at that information. For instance, maybe you are really interested in the different types of minerals that can be found on Earth. You would design a wiki that showcased all of your knowledge about minerals, including links to other websites for more information, pictures where appropriate, and any related videos that may help explain or expand upon any ideas.

    How do tornadoes form?
    Many tornadoes develop in a special Type of thunderstorm called a "supercell". A layer of warm humid air forms near the ground along with strong south winds. In the upper atmosphere lie colder air and strong west or southwest winds. the temperature and moisture differences between the surface and upper levels create instability, which is one of the necessary factors for the formation of tornadoes. The alteration of the speed and height of the wind is called "wind shear". The wind shear helps the development of rotation, which forms the tornado. A lifting of the air is the beginning of the development of very violent thunderstorms that eventually help the final formation of the tornado. When the updraft starts rotating, the tornado arises.

    Funnel Cloud
    A funnel cloud is a funnel shaped cloud made of condensed water droplets associated with a rotating column of wind and extending from the base of a cloud but not touching the ground. A funnel cloud is usually visible as a cone shaped protuberance from the base of a cloud. Funnel clouds form most often when associated with supercell thunderstorms. If a funnel cloud touches the ground it becomes a tornado.
