Teachers, are you looking for resources to help you engage students in data analysis related to the Urban Heat Island in North America?
Check out this monthly 2018 poster card set featuring two science variables related to Urban Heat Islands: Monthly Surface Air Temperature (degrees Celsius) & Monthly Daytime Skin Temperature (degrees Celsius).
My NASA Data has recently released several new resources, story maps, for use in educational settings.
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.
Ocean waters are constantly on the move; understanding how and why they move is not an easy task. However, it is an important job considering that these waters affect Earth’s climate, as well as habitats for plants and animals, even on land.
