Product Description
I saw some posted maps and graphs from Mesonet.org, and I gathered it from them and put it in a Google document in a way I thought was user-friendly. They have many different types of data on their website. In particular, there is a great graph that shows how solar radiation dips from the expected pattern during the eclipse.

They also created video animations that show maps of Oklahoma with data all through the state – in 5 minute increments – for changes in air temperature and solar radiation before, during, and after the eclipse.

I opened the videos and did screen shots in 15 minute increments. You may want to use some of the maps, or scroll through them, so students can see the changes in color that represent changes in the numbers. I went through and found a common station in Tulsa County and collected that data for each variable in a table.

Air temperature seems to have some other variable that might affect it, but solar radiation makes a great dip down through the eclipse just as you’d expect.

Within this document I’ve written up some thoughts on different ways to use the data. For BIOLOGY or ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE -- I had a thought to wonder if biomes and native vegetation in different areas of Oklahoma would affect how air temperature changes. I included some Oklahoma Biome maps to aid in that exploration.
