Weather Balloon Project

On this page a young man chronicles his ambitious weather  balloon project.     He designed a  balloon  to collect altitude, weather, position, and image data.     The results were quite impressive and he includes links to data and images.     Although some parts of this article are a bit technical, teachers could easily incorporate it into a lesson.     Teachers could even have their students construct a simple weather balloon themselves (as did my mentor teacher in Nenana).
