Students plot the locations of fallout from two disasters that polluted much of the world's air. They plot the ash fallout from the 1980 Mt. St. Helen's eruption to see what the wind patterns in the United States look like overall. Next they plot the fallout from the explosion at Chernobyl in 1986 to see what wind patterns over Europe are like overall.
