NASA visualizers take data – numbers, codes – and turn them into animations people can see and quickly understand.

The activities in this guide will help students understand variations in environmental parameters by examining connections among different phenomena measured on local, regional and global scales.
Students analyze map visualizations representing the amount of Sun’s energy received on the Earth as indicated by the amount that is reflected back to space, known as “albedo”.
This graphic organizer may be used to help students analyze the processes and components of Earth System phenomena.
Helping students build their understanding of Earth's spheres and how they are connected is difficult. Review the graphics to help identify the parts of the Earth System and the processes that connect them at the local, regional, and global scales.
What is the Atmosphere?
Did you know that you can estimate the amount of energy that the plants absorb for any given location on Earth using NASA data? We call that the "energy efficiency" of photosynthesis. This is the ratio of the amount of energy stored to the amount energy of light absorbed. You can use these data to evaluate and model photosynthesis efficiency.
This digital GLOBE Earth system (digital) poster images show global visualizations of different science variables for 2019, 2018, 2016, and 2013. Students may use these images to find patterns among different environmental data, understand the relationships among different environmental parameters, and more.
