Students will observe monthly satellite data of the North Atlantic to identify relationships among key science variables that include sea surface salinity (SS), air temperature at the ocean surface (AT), sea surface temperature (ST), evaporation (EV), precipitation (PT), and evaporation minus pre
Students develop and test a hypothesis about how albedo affects temperature.
This activity invites students to model and observe the effect of melting ice sheets (from land) on sea level and the difference between the effect of melting sea-ice to that of melting land ice on sea level.
This story map allows students to explore the formation and impacts of ash and aerosols from volcanic eruptions around the world in a 5 E-learning cycle.
In Unearthing Data: Phytoplankton Part 2, Dr. Brad Hegyi explains the last three steps of a "data dig". These steps will guide students in some techniques for asking and answering questions before summarizing their results.
