What is an atmospheric river(AR)?



North America from space. Elements furnished by NASA - https://www.noaa.gov/stories/what-are-atmospheric-rivers

How are they ranked? Students become familiar with this weather phenomena and learn how the different ARs are measured. To more fully understand their power, students compare the strength of an AR to the momentum of a Mack truck. They need to convert meters/second to miles/hour. How strong are ARs really? Are they all dangerous?
