Two Google Gadgets -- a type of small Web application -- created by Purdue staff and students working for ITaP let users see a visual, animated rendering of cloud cover, cloud pressure and water vapor as they change over the entire country and individual states, along with wildfire threats in the Midwest, among other things.
