Abstract

Improvements in computer technology, particularly the explosive growth of Internet applications, have created unprecedented educational opportunities, but with concomitantly little experience on how educators can best take advantage of them. The Laboratory for the Exploration of Atmospheric Processes (LEAP) is a new 15-workstation computer laboratory operated by the Department of Meteorology at Texas A&M University. The setup and use of LEAP in a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses are described. Particular emphasis is placed on applications that use the World Wide Web or specialized meteorological software, with the aims of fostering greater discussion of computer-based teaching methods in meteorology and sharing and improvement of Web-based teaching materials.
