Explorando mapas de colores: Usando datos de ozono estratosférico

Using the 5E instructional model, students discover the value of using color maps to visualize data. The activity requires students to create a color map of the ozone hole from Dobson data values derived from the Aura satellite.

MY NASA DATA: El Niño Lesson

The strength of the historic 1997-1999 El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) event was captured and recorded by NASA Earth observing satellites. By downloading and plotting that satellite data, students will observe and analyze El Niño's effect on sea level height and sea surface temperatures.

GPM in a Minute Video

In a one minute time lapse video, viewers are shown the assembly sequence of the Global Precipitation Measurement satellite from its 2011 beginning at Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland to its 2014 launch at Tanegashima Space Center in Japan.

Is There Life on Other Worlds?

In this activity, learners will explore the question, What is the chance that we are the only life in the universe? They determine what we need to know to predict the chances of extraterrestrial life.

SciJinks: Can Meteorologists Help Fight Wildfires?

This article provides information about "incident meteorologists" and the important role they have in fighting wildfires. SciJinks is a joint NASA/NOAA educational website targeting middle school-aged children and their educators.

Snow Goggles and Limiting Sunlight

This is a lesson about radiation and the use of the scientific method to solve problems of too much radiation.

Carbon Dioxide Increases

In this problem set, learners will analyze the Keeling Curve showing carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere since 1985 to answer a series of questions. Answer key is provided. This is part of Earth Math: A Brief Mathematical Guide to Earth Science and Climate Change.

Manual Land Cover Mapping Protocol

In this activity, students produce a land cover map of a 15 km x 15 km GLOBE study site from hard copies of Landsat satellite images. Students place clear transparencies over the Landsat TM images and use markers to outline and classify areas of different land cover using the MUC System.

Odyssey of the Eyes: Advanced

This activity helps students understand the connections between remote-sensing technology, computer imagery and land cover assessment, and models how a satellite sensor communicates information to a computer.

Does the Universe have a Fingerprint?

This fact card is about the significance of the pattern of microwave radiation that WMAP (Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe) has detected. The card uses the analogy of human fingerprints to show the ability to identify the right "suspect" from the pattern.
