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.
Students move through a series of short activities to explore and evaluate global solar radiation data from NASA satellites. In this process, students make qualitative and quantitative observations about seasonal variations in net energy input to the Earth system.
The processes comprising the Earth’s environment are interconnected.
This activity is one of a series in the collection, The Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change activities.
