Software engineers play an important role at NASA as this field supports the success of our missions on Earth and beyond. This field will continue to grow as it helps NASA address the many challenges that our agency faces.
Review the animation showing seasonal chlorophyll concentration as it relates to net radiation.
In this mini lesson, students explore the relationship of chlorophyll and solar radiation by analyzing line graphs from the North Atlantic during 2016-2018.
The radar measurements made by NASA's Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) observatory are sensitive to whether land surfaces are frozen or thawed. Students analyze two maps of SMAP data to make inferences about changes to the Arctic's Geosphere showing spring thaw.
This video provides tips for teachers on helping students make sense of data to help them understand and work with data.
Examine (daytime) surface temperature and solar radiation received at locations found near similar latitudes using NASA Data.
