About

Up in the Air lets you Journey across the world as the wind. The path represents the larger-scale wind trajectory drawing from over 30 years of atmospheric data*. Blow into the microphone to start your adventure.


There will be a few stops along the way. You'll see events from the past 30 years at each stop. Keep blowing, you're the wind!


*Climatological long-term monthly means, thanks to Unidata IDV and NCEP Reanalysis data provided by the NOAA/OAR/ESRL PSD, Boulder, Colorado, USA.


“All the air you've been breathing out, It has circled around the world, And all the time you've just been standing here, Well your breath's already seen the world." ~King Toad
