This activity is modified from the USDA/US Forest Services' lesson found in the Natural Inquirer newsletter. The purpose of this hands-on activity is to engage students in a similar process for monitoring forests as NASA scientists use to study the Biosphere, whereby they apply what they know of
This series of videos highlights how NASA Climate Scientists use mathematics to solve everyday problems. These educational videos to illustrate how math is used in satellite data analysis.
GLOBE protocols and learning activities that complement the Volcanic Eruptions phenomenon through hands-on investigations are detailed.
This activity is one of a series in the collection, The Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change activities.
Carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere is affected, among other things, by processes involving forests including fires, deforestation and plant respiration. Evaluate a Landsat image to determine the rate of carbon dioxide sequestration in a particular area.
Steve Nerem is the leader of NASA’s Sea Level Change team. His project, Observation-Driven Projections of Future Regional Sea Level Change, focuses on using NASA satellite and in situ observations and climate modeling to estimate future regional sea level change.
Students examine satellite images of a recently formed island to identify areas of erosion and deposition.
Students solve math problems to compare the carbon dioxide generated by the airline industry, a large volcanic eruption, and burning oil.
