This activity will help students understand how NASA scientists are discovering evidence of impact craters on Earth through satellite images and technology, which enables them to see landforms that we cannot see with our eyes alone. Earth and all the other planets and moons of our Solar System have been continuously pelted by asteroids and comets ever since their formation. On Earth though, wind and ... Full description.

This 5-minute animation portrays fluctuations in the cryosphere through observations collected from a variety of satellite-based sensors. The cryosphere consists of those parts of the Earth's surface where water is found in solid form, including areas of snow, sea ice, glaciers, permafrost, ice sheets, and icebergs. In these regions, surface temperatures remain below freezing for a portion of each ... Full description.

In this chapter, users take the role of students from a small town in Colorado, who team up with students from the town of Churchill, Manitoba, to explore changing sea ice conditions in the Arctic. Together they examine an animation that shows 30 years of satellite images to see how the extent of sea ice in the Arctic has diminished over time. The chapter storyline is built around the real-life case ... Full description.

In this chapter, using My World GIS, users explore data that characterize the dynamic Greenland Ice Sheet. By examining photographs, map views, and tabular data, users gain an understanding of how and why scientists are monitoring the ice sheet and what they are finding. Users explore map layers that represent ice sheet thickness, weather station locations, and annual melt extents of the ice sheet. ... Full description.

In this chapter, users explore relationships between air quality and population density using the image visualization tool, Google Earth. Humans discovered long ago that burning fossil fuels was a convenient way to get power. In engines for automobiles and plants that generate electricity, huge volumes of oil, gas, and coal are burned every day. Where many people live together in concentrated areas, ... Full description.

This exercise allows students to compare and contrast the nucleus of two comets and listen to audio files of NASA scientists and middle-school students conducting the activity. The imagery and data are authentic and related to real-world science that is currently underway. By comparing their responses to those of NASA scientists, students realize that while their vocabulary may be different, their ... Full description.
