1. Part 1 of project due today
2. Part 2 of project due Friday
3. Discuss your most important question for the week with a group
4. Did you set up your Twitter account?

Here are today's powerpoint slides.

Key words mentioned in today's class include

Speaking of temperature anomaly plots, here is the latest weekly sea surface temperature anomaly map of the Pacific Ocean. Currently there is a large area of below average water in the eastern Pacific that is thought to be trending toward a La Nina event later this year.

Here are some more remarks on your class project.

If you work in a group, your write-up must be original and your “solution” must be different than your team-mates
