Use the Data Literacy Cubes to guide students’ exploration of data to enrich their observations and inferences. This is a flexible resource that may be used with a variety of graphical representations of data. This activity requires a graph for students to evaluate. For the purposes
Hurricane Harvey dropped record-breaking amounts of rainfall, particularly around Houston, Texas on August 25, 2017.
The Soil Moisture Active Passive mission (SMAP) was launched in 2015 as the first NASA satellite dedicated to measuring the water content of soils. The satellite uses a radiometer to measure soil moisture in the top 5 centimeters of the ground.
The radar measurements made by NASA's Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) observatory are sensitive to whether land surfaces are frozen or thawed.
Phenomena: Soil Moisture (located in the Pedosphere Soil GLOBE Resources) Data collection of soil temperature, moisture, and physical and chemical properties is invaluable to scie
Soil moisture plays a major role in the chemical, biological and physical activities that take place in the soil. Chemically, moisture transports substances through the profile.
Soil Moisture GLOBE Learning Activities have been developed to provide students with a hands-on experience to guide their understanding of the properties of soil that aff
Visualize NASA data on a custom map or graph using our Earth System Data Explorer. Generate your own maps and graphs using a range of datasets supporting this phenomenon.
