Activity 1: Seeing the Wind

In this activity we will investigate the phenomenon we call "the wind" in an effort to understand the process of remote sensing.

    i. What is the wind made of?


    ii. Does the wind have a speed and direction?


    iii. What color is the wind?


    iv. What is wind chill?


B. Which of the questions from question A can you answer best using the techniques of remote sensing? Think of how you could get the necessary data using your eyes or other test equipment without ever having direct contact with the wind. Explain your reasoning.
