Weather Ed is an Australian first in education that sets a new national standard in learning about weather and geography. Custom-produced for young people around the country, Weather Ed is a ten-part television series, produced by The Weather Channel, which brings the nation's secondary school geography curriculum to life, reflecting youth culture and spearheading 21st century learning. This first episode take students through the wonders of atmospheric processes that create the temperature and rainfall conditions on a global scale.
These episodes explore some of the natural hazards the Australian climate brings. These include floods, thunderstorms, droughts and bushfires. Although these events are natural, our response to them is important to reduce both the economic and human life cost. In these episodes, students will relive some of Australia's natural disasters from a human and environmental perspective and gain an understanding of the role of the State Emergency Services in limiting the impacts.
This final episode draws together the understanding developed in previous episodes and lessons on our Earth, climate and atmospheric processes. It enables students to use weather maps and satellite imagery to make weather predictions that will assist them in their daily lives.
