The Geosphere is associated with solid portions of the Earth. It includes the continental and oceanic crust and all other layers of the Earth's interior. This includes all rocks, sediments and soils, surface landforms and the processes that shape the Earth's surface.
Please consider using this graphic organizer to help students analyze the processes and components of Earth System phenomena.
Public Lab partnership with NASA AREN, GLOBE, and with support from Goggle Summer of Code, brings new easy-to-use DIY satellite imaging tools for classroom use. Check out this
Check out these learning activities to help prepare students for collecting data and support the integration of MND with GLOBE in your curriculum.
There are many activities and protocols in GLOBE that support learning about Earth's changes in land surface and use. Please note: My NASA Data Geosphere phenomena relate closely to GLOBE Pedosphe
Information from satellites if often used to display information about objects. This information can include how things appear as well as their contents. Explore how pixel data sequences can be used to create an image and interpret it.
Scientific data are often represented by assigning ranges of numbers to specific colors. The colors are then used to make an images which allow us to see patterns more easily. Students will make a false color image using a set of numbers.
Examine data to evaluate the primary land cover in 1900 versus the projected primary land cover in 2100. Discuss the implications of the differences.
Learn how Landsat data are used to detect changes in land use. This video describes how the data are interpreted and gives examples of changes in forests from different insects and differences due to land management.
The purpose of this activity is to have students use an Earth Systems perspective to identify the various causes associated with changes to Earth's forests as they review Landsat imagery of site locations from around the world.
