Analyzing monthly environmental data from the North Atlantic Ocean will help you to learn more about how the water cycle affects sea surface salinity. Your challenge is to find the data set that most closely corresponds to sea surface salinity patterns.

Earth-orbiting satellites and other technological advances have enabled scientists to observe changing atmospheric temperatures as they collect many different types of information about our planet and its climate on a global scale.

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.

Land surface temperature is how hot the “surface” of the Earth would feel to the touch in a particular location. From a satellite’s point of view, the “surface” is whatever it sees when it looks through the atmosphere to the ground.

Let's compare global anomaly averages in zones of differing latitude. The zonal graph shows the global surface temperature anomaly trends (calculated using land-ocean temperatures) for April 2018.   The zones mean the different latitudinal zones: Arctic (90.0 - 64.2°N), N.

Whether or not you are an elementary, middle, or high school science teacher, we bet that you observe and investigate air temperatures or (their effects) with your students.  Changing air temperatures are cyclical and predictable, but also are rising beyond the normal range due to a variety of fa

This graph illustrates the change in global surface temperature relative to 1951-1980 average temperatures. Seventeen of the 18 warmest years in the 136-year record all have occurred since 2001, with the exception of 1998. The year 2016 ranks as the warmest on record.
