In this activity, users examine satellite images from NASA's Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) that show how much ozone is in the atmosphere over the Southern Hemisphere. They interpret the images to identify ozone thinning that develops over this region each summer, and compare its size from year to year. Using freely available image analysis software, ImageJ, users quantify the area of the ... Full description.

In this lesson, students create graphs to explore how hurricanes extract heat energy from the ocean surface. It is designed to help students gain knowledge in using the MY NASA DATA Live Access Server (LAS) to specify, download and use a microset of data. Students will make graphs from the data microset, then use the graphs to investigate locations along the track of Hurricane Rita where lowered Sea ... Full description.

These activities enable students to use remotely-sensed data- as they tackle the real-world problems and tasks found in existing Event-Based Science (EBS) modules. Remotely-sensed data are employed as an integral part of both the presentation of Earth system science concepts, and in the solutions to real-world problems. The activities emphasize the use of NASA remote-sensing data from satellites and ... Full description.
