Examples of specific topics covered include aircraft electrification, airmass, anabatic wind, boundary layer, convection, Dansgaard-Oeschger event, Dobson spectrophotometer, gradient wind, katabatic
wind, meteorology, noble gases, pollution control, temperature scales, waterspout, and Venturi effect.
winds, created by variation in air-mass temperatures, are found in places like the upper Matanuska Valley and near Seward and Juneau.
These features include extensive loess deposits (now supporting the farming industry in large areas of the Mississippi basin) transported by ferocious katabatic
winds that formed as air flowed off the cold surfaces of glaciers, river valleys carved by water surging from glacial lakes (Lake Agassiz, Lake Duluth, etc.), flat shoreline terraces (often selected by Native American and European settlers as sites for villages and towns), and the so-called "driftless" region that escaped the last glacial ice sheets.
It was the first time all five regional ensembles, Young Sinfonia, Folkestra, Jambone, Katabatic
