Studying the Process of Science Using MY NASA DATA

Changing climate trends are currently a “HOT” topic. There seem to be a lot of people with differing opinions as to whether or not our climate is actually undergoing drastic changes, or simply experiencing a normal shift similar to that which has been occurring throughout the life of our planet. So, how do scientists study a question of this magnitude? As you examine the MY NASA DATA Live Access Server you will examine and select data parameters (variables) that could be used by scientists to study current climate trends.
