Students analyze data from graphs for sea ice extent (area) in both polar regions (Arctic and Antarctic) to learn about seasonal variations and over a 30-year period to learn about longer-term trends.
Are you looking for a storyline about using albedo values to measure change in the cryosphere using NASA data? Consider using the following resources in your classroom today!
Students develop and test a hypothesis about how albedo affects temperature.
Students will use the NASA Earth Observations analysis tool to explore changing albedo in the Arctic compared with other areas of Earth.
