This graphic organizer may be used to help students analyze the processes and components of Earth System phenomena.
Students review a visualization showing a global view of the top-of-atmosphere longwave radiation from January 26 and 27, 2012. They review the supporting text and analyze the data in the visualization to answer questions.
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.
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.
Learners follow adventurous camper, Awenasa, as she travels the United States and attends various camp locations throughout the year. Learners analyze data to find her location among the various campsites using monthly averaged NASA satellite data (Cloud Coverage, S
Students will analyze a pie chart (circle graph) showing the distribution of different parts of the Earth system the in absorption and reflection of energy.
This lesson is designed to help students analyze the interaction between different cloud types and Earth's incoming and outgoing energy.
Dr. Patrick Taylor (Atmospheric Scientist, NASA Langley Research Center) discusses how he studies clouds and Earth's energy budget by analyzing data from Low Earth Orbit satellites. He also discusses the different effects of clouds on the energy budget.
