Meteorologists use sophisticated computer models of the world's atmosphere to make long-term, short-term, and local-area forecasts. Heating the air causes the air balloon rise because the heated air is lighter than the colder air around it. Cold air contains more water vapor than warm air does. Water also expands as it gets warmer, further exacerbating sea level rise. Dunn -- Carbon-oxygen cycle / Gina Hagler -- Caspian Sea / Elizabeth D.

I've added this section for those of you with extra time to teach the "fun" stuff. The relationship between air pressure and weather. Distinguish between weathering (i.e., wearing down and breaking of rock surfaces) and erosion (i.e., the movement of materials). Large continent-size blocks (plates) move slowly about Earth’s surface, driven by that thermal energy. The ocean loses thermal energy due to the evaporation of water.
