Meteorologists use various instruments and data to predict the weather. Imagine that you are interviewing a meteorologist to learn more about how they make predictions. Among the following variables, what instrument could they use to measure atmospheric pressure, one of the important factors in weather forecasting?

Question 1:


Every day, meteorologists collect important information to make weather forecasts, such as temperature, air humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind direction and speed, among others. Imagine that you are a weather scientist and have been asked to make a weather forecast for tomorrow. (a) Identify and explain three variables that you consider essential to analyze in order to make this forecast. (b) Choose one of the variables and describe how you would measure this information. (c) Simulate a hypothetical situation in which the information collected from this variable indicates a significant change in the weather, and based on that, make a weather forecast.

Question 2:


Imagine that you are a meteorologist responsible for predicting the weather for a coastal city in Brazil. The city is located in a region where the sea temperature is an important variable for weather forecasting. You observe that the sea temperature has increased significantly in a short period of time. Considering this scenario and your knowledge of meteorology principles, what type of weather phenomenon could you predict for the next few days? Justify your answer.

Question 4:


Imagine you are a scientist researching the effects of climate change on different terrestrial biomes. You observe that a certain region, which used to be a thriving temperate deciduous forest, is gradually experiencing less rainfall and higher temperatures over the years. Given this trend, predict which terrestrial biome this region is likely to transition into if these environmental changes continue, and explain the characteristics of the new biome that would allow it to survive under these conditions.
