Are you looking for a storyline about using albedo values to measure change in the cryosphere using NASA data? Consider using the following resources in your classroom today!
Check out this the Arctic and Earth SIGNs video to explore how climate models are used in climate change research.
In Part A of this lab, students will examine a variety of images and maps of the whole Earth in order to identify the major components of the Earth system at a global scale.
This activity is designed to introduce students to geologic processes on Earth and how to identify geologic features in images. It will also introduce students to how scientists use Earth to gain a better understanding of other planetary bodies in the solar system.
This activity invites students to simulate and observe the different effects on sea level from melting sea-ice.
Students evaluate graphs and images of sea ice and relate them to changes in albedo. Students make a claim about the interaction of albedo and sea ice extent.
In this activity, students use satellite images from the NASA Landsat team to quantify changes in glacier cover over time from 1986 to 2018.
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.
