Forests are an important and common feature of the Earth’s land cover, covering 31 percent of the total land surface. There are two regions in particular where forests are common.
An urban heat island is a phenomenon that is best described when a city experiences much warmer temperatures than in nearby rural areas. The sun’s heat and light reach the city and the country in the same way. The difference in temperature between urban and less-developed rural areas has to do with how well the surfaces in each environment absorb and hold heat.
Analyze these Landsat images of Atlanta, Georgia to explore the relationship between surface temperature and vegetation.
This line graph shows how the surface temperature and air temperature values change over the course of 24 hours.
The Earth is constantly changing. Some of this change occurs slowly over many millennia, and some occurs relatively rapidly over the decades.
Identifying cause and effect relationships can help us make predictions about the function of natural systems and their impact on the world. These relationships, whether simple or complex, are vital for forecasting weather and predicting Earth events in new contexts.
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.
My NASA Data has recently released several new resources, story maps, for use in educational settings.
