Use the My NASA Data Cubes to guide students’ exploration of mapped data of the Earth System to enrich their observations and inferences. This is a flexible resource that may be used with a variety of mapped images. This activity requires a map of Earth data for students to evaluate.
The colors on these maps show a measure of the "greenness" of Earth's landscapes. The values on these maps—ranging from -0.1 to 0.9—have no unit.
Freshwater is found in lakes, rivers, soil, snow, groundwater and ice, and is one of the most essential of Earth's resources, for drinking water and agriculture. However, the distribution of freshwater around the planet is changing.
Visit NASA NEO's Global Temperature Anomaly to observe values for months or years. These maps — developed by NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) — depict how much various regions of the world have warmed or cooled when compared with a base period of 1951-1980.
NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) provides monthly maps and graphs showcasing nearly global surface temperature changes monthly for the period since 1880 when meteorological stations were established around the world.
Use the My NASA Data 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
At the core of scientific visualization is the representation of data graphically - through images, animations, and videos - to improve understanding and develop insight.
