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”.
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.
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.
