Test your knowledge of soil moisture and its effect on global populations. Soil moisture is the amount of water contained in the soil.
This series of videos highlights how NASA Climate Scientists use mathematics to solve everyday problems. These educational videos to illustrate how math is used in satellite data analysis.
For over 20 years, satellite altimeters have measured the sea surface height of our ever-changing oceans. This series of images shows the complicated patterns of rising and falling ocean levels across the globe from 1993 to 2015.
An animation showing “sea level fingerprints,” or patterns of rising and falling sea levels across the globe in response to changes in Earth’s gravitational and rotational fields. Major changes in water mass can cause localized bumps and dips in gravity, sometimes with counterintuitive effects.
Purpose: Consider using this mini-lesson during the last 10 minutes of the class period/lesson to assess students formative learning.
MND recognizes the importance of data literacy, especially in the Earth Sciences because data are the foundation of science. But what does data literacy look like?
STEM holds different meanings to users in the education communities.
The My NASA Data program has served the science community since 2005. With the implementation of N
The advance-and-retreat cycle of snow cover drastically changes the whiteness and brightness of Earth. Using these two 2017 maps created using NASA satellite data, have students review the seasonal differences of snow and ice extent.
