Greek Children's Alternative Conceptions on Weather and Climate.
Spiropoulou, D.; Kostopoulos, D.; Jacovides, C. P.
School Science Review, v81 n294 p55-59 Sep 1999
Describes a survey of Greek schoolchildren's alternative conceptions about weather and climate. Finds that misconceptions exist, including confusion between the meanings of the terms "weather" and "climate", inflated estimates of temperature, and a belief that yearly weather data define climate. Suggests ways to help students overcome these misconceptions. (Contains 11 references.) (Author/WRM)
