Only at Valpo

Students in Professor Teresa Bals-Elsholz’s MET 372 Atmospheric Dynamics class gain “Ah-ha moments” with the help of an Augmented Reality sandbox built from scratch by Valpo’s staff meteorologist, David Goines. Students use the sandbox to gain new perspective on the slope of the atmosphere and how it affects the flow of the jetstream. This hands-on visual tool also aids Advanced Geomorphology students to see the impact river flow has on various landscape patterns.
