Wind in the Solar System
McIntosh, Gordon
Physics Teacher, v48 n2 p94-95 Feb 2010
As an astronomy instructor I am always looking for commonly experienced Earthly phenomena to help my students and me understand and appreciate similar occurrences elsewhere in the solar system. Recently I wrote short "TPT" articles on frost and precipitation. The present article is on winds in the solar system. A windy day or storm might motivate the inclusion of this subject into a lecture.
