Exploring salinity patterns is a great way to better understand the relationships between the water cycle, ocean circulation, and climate. Explore sea surface salinity mapped plots created from the Earth System Data Explorer, paired with questions (and answers) from the Aquarius Mission. Credit: Aquarius Education
Visualize NASA's daily and monthly soil moisture data on a custom map or graph using our Earth System Data Explorer. Generate your own maps and graphs using a range of datasets supporting this phenomenon.
Students can interact with NASA data to build a custom visualizations of of local, regional, or global plant growth patterns over time. Use the Earth System Data Explorer to generate plots of satellite data as you develop models of this phenomenon.
See the following datasets in the Earth System Data Explorer:
Visualize NASA data on a custom map using our Earth System Data Explorer to generate your own maps and graphs. See the Dataset in LAS to see the range of datasets supporting this phenomenon.
The purpose of this lesson is for students to create, analyze and compare histograms, box plots and scatter plots and evaluate the spread of the data. You can choose which types of graphs you want your students to complete.
Visualize NASA data on a custom map using our Earth System Data Explorer. Generate your own maps and graphs using a range of datasets supporting this phenomenon.
Use the Data Literacy Map Cubes to familiarize yourself with and interpret the model.
Are you interested in accessing NASA data featuring ocean's mean sea level data to create your own model? If so, you don't want to miss this mini lesson where models are easily created using the My NASA Data Earth System Data Explorer's 5-day Mean Sea Level (Sea Surface Height) Anomaly (meters).
