This activity invites students to simulate and observe the different effects on sea level from melting sea-ice.
Check out this the Arctic and Earth SIGNs video to explore how climate models are used in climate change research.
The ocean's surface is not level, and sea levels change in response to changes in chemistry and temperature. Sophisticated satellite measurements are required for scientists to document current sea level rise.
To investigate the different rates of heating and cooling of certain materials on earth in order to understand the heating dynamics that take place in the Earth’s atmosphere.
The HoloGLOBE app brings satellite images and real-time data straight to you. Use the Merge Cube to view tons of global information, simulations, and video compilations of data from numerous scientific organizations.
This USGS activity leads students to an understanding of what remote sensing means and how researchers use it to study changes to the Earth’s surface, such as deforestation.
This story map lesson plan allows students to explore ocean circulation patterns as they relate to the world's ocean garbage patches using NASA ocean currents data.
The purpose of this activity is to have students use an Earth Systems perspective to identify the various causes associated with changes to Earth's forests as they review Landsat imagery of site locations from around the world.
