Two interesting resources have been added to  chapter 7 of Energy Flow (http://www.globalsystemsscience.org/studentbooks/ef/ch7): (1) announcement from NASA Release 14-086 (http://www.nasa.gov/press/2014/march/first-images-available-from-nasa-jaxa-global-rain-and-snowfall-satellite/#.UzHYa15GLHQ) of first images captured by the newest Earth-observing satellite, the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Core Observatory including 3D representation of the structure of a storm; and (2) an interactive Earth display that allows you to select atmospheric properties - http://earth.nullschool.net/ - See the end of GSS Energy Flow chapter 7 (http://www.globalsystemsscience.org/studentbooks/ef/ch7)
