The Met Office has been working on behalf of Open Air Laboratories (OPAL) at the Natural History Museum to encourage learning about weather and climate change. The
As part of OPAL the Met Office is coordinating a climate survey, an exciting national experiment that allows you to explore your local climate by conducting a number of experiments such as blowing bubbles to monitor local wind patterns, observe aeroplane trails, or contrails and finally record how hot or cold they feel as part of efforts to see how people might cope with temperature changes.
The Met Office is also been asked by OPAL to answer your questions about climate change. Most people have questions about climate change, and the Met Office, as experts in weather and climate science will take your questions and provide you with the answers you need to make sense of climate science.
