Teachers, are you looking for resources to help you engage students in data analysis related to Global Phytoplankton Distribution?
Check out this monthly 2018 poster card set featuring two science variables related to Phytoplankton Distribution: Chlorophyll Concentration (milligrams per cubic meter) & Monthly Flow of Energy into Surface by Shortwave Radiation (watts per square meter)
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.
Students will analyze surface temperature and solar radiation data to construct explanations about the relationship of seasons and temperature to the amount of solar energy received on Earth’s surface.
Check out this the Arctic and Earth SIGNs video to explore how climate models are used in climate change research.
Examine (daytime) surface temperature and solar radiation received at locations found near similar latitudes using NASA Data.
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.
In this NASA investigation, "What's Hot at the Mall," students examine how shopping malls change natural environments by examining thermal images gathered by NASA showing an area in Huntsville, Alabama.
