Students interpret a graph of surface temperatures taken from city districts.
Examine a model and answer questions about dust transport around the world.
Students solve math problems to compare the carbon dioxide generated by the airline industry, a large volcanic eruption, and burning oil.
Learn about volcanic ash and watch a visualization of the Calbuco volcano to see how ash travels around the world.
Watch NASA videos about aerosols and volcanic ash and answer questions.
Students observe the surface temperatures of a variety of surface types found in a suburban environment.
The radar measurements made by NASA's Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) observatory are sensitive to whether land surfaces are frozen or thawed. Students analyze two maps of SMAP data to make inferences about changes to the Arctic's Geosphere showing spring thaw.
Scientific data are often represented by assigning ranges of numbers to specific colors. The colors are then used to make false color images which allow us to see patterns more easily. Students will make a false-color image using a set of numbers.
Students will describe the changes in a newly-formed volcanic island over the first three years of its life.
