Dr. Dalia B. Kirschbaum is a Research Physical Scientist in the Hydrological Sciences Lab at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD. Learn how she uses mathematics to investigate the interaction between the Hydrosphere & Geosphere.
Using the various visualizations (i.e., images, charts, and graphs) from 2016 Hurricane Matthew, students explore the energy exchange that occurs when hurricanes extract heat energy from the ocean.
Students will use NASA satellite data to determine the location of the greatest concentrations of aerosols during the course of a year in the tropical Atlantic region and their relationship to cloud coverage.
Tropical cyclones are sometimes called hurricanes. Some areas of the world have more tropical cyclones that others. The number of tropical cyclones from 1842-2017 is shown on the map below.
The purpose of this lesson is for students to create a histogram using tropical cyclone data.
Tropical cyclones are sometimes called hurricanes or typhoons. The image is a model of the number of tropical cyclones around the world from 1842 – 2017.
Students will analyze and interpret a box plot and evaluate the spread of the data. Students will compare it with a different visualization of the data to see how the two compare.
The purpose of this lesson is for students to create, a box plot and evaluate the spread of the data. This is part of the Tropical Cyclone Counts Graphing Bundle and can be completed independently or with
