Instructional Videos for GLOBE Earth System Poster

Purpose

The Earth System Poster activity walks learners through global patterns and illuminates how each of the spheres is interconnected across the world. We will divide into small groups to look at maps of different parts of the earth system that have been observed by NASA satellites. We will start by examining a single map of a single variable being monitored from space, then look at how that variable changes through the year. We will put our variables together and investigate how they influence one another, and how they might shift with a rapidly changing Arctic climate.
