In this activity students explore the concept of climate. They will use temperature and precipitation data from their area and other regions to construct climate graphs. These graphs are used to help identify factors that influence climate. Climate graphs displaying data from locations in Antarctica allow students to explore that continent's unique climatic conditions. Student will compare and contrast ... Full description.

In this lesson, students complete a sequence of activities provided in a land planning document. They will look at how human activities in the state of Maryland have evolved over the last 50 years, identifying characteristics of planned development versus sprawl. They will use maps to evaluate geographic features, explain the connection between land development and the environment, and examine the ... Full description.

In this activity students assume the role of water system designers. They have been asked to go to a small town to design a new public water supply system. They must decide how to link all the homes and businesses to the water source so that everyone can get the water they need. The class will work as a group to design the delivery system. As a result of this activity, students are able to build a ... Full description.

It's remarkable to think that a compound renowned for its safety and stability in commercial products could have dramatically compromised the health of our planet, but that's just what chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) has done. This video segment describes how CFCs, once widely used in refrigerators and aerosol cans, damaged the protective layer of ozone in our atmosphere. The segment is five minutes four ...

Users download and analyze satellite images showing the amount of ozone in the stratosphere. They interpret the images to identify the ozone "hole" that develops over Antarctica each summer, and compare its size from year to year. Using freely available image analysis software, ImageJ, users quantify the area of the Antarctic ozone hole each October from 1996 to 2004. Finally, they bring their measurements ...

This EET Chapter will introduce you to visualization capabilities available through NASA's Earth Observatory. You'll build several animations of satellite data that illustrate carbon pathways through the Earth system. For instance, you'll build animations of fire images that indicate carbon is being released into the atmosphere. You'll also make animations of plant productivity images that indicate ...
