Check out this the Arctic and Earth SIGNs video to explore how climate models are used in climate change research.
Students review Earth System phenomena that are affected by soil moisture. They analyze and evaluate maps of seasonal global surface air temperature and soil moisture data from NASA satellites.
Examine surface temperature and solar radiation received at locations found near similar latitudes using NASA Data.
Students will analyze surface temperature and solar radiation data to construct explanations about the relationship of seasons and temperature to the amount of solar energy received on Earth’s surface.
