This is a wiki for ENSC 408 – Storms that provides information that is supplemental to the course and the material held on the course webpage at

For Lab 1 of the course part of the assignment is to collaboratively create a webpage that has links to two “best” URLs (Universal Resource Locators) of information and data related to Middle-latitude cyclones / storms for each of the categories below. You should enter this information into this wiki by editing it below. You should categorize the information by the major headings shown below. Each URL should be accompanied by a brief paragraph describing what the location contains. At the end of your entry, put your initials in bold so that I can mark it.

Hints: use Google; try different search engines; search on course keywords you can extract from the course outline and text table of contents; try some of the URLs listed in the ENSC 408 homepage.
