This chapter walks users through a technique for documenting change in before-and-after sets of satellite images. The technique can be used for any set of time-series images that are spatially registered to show the exact same area at the same scale. In the chapter, users examine three Landsat images of the Pearl River delta in southeastern China. In these images, users observe changes in land use, ... Full description.

This activity introduces students to planetary research. Students learn to focus on details by studying and writing descriptions of uncaptioned images of the Solar System. They then increase their knowledge of the planets and their features by comparing their descriptions to those of real researchers. Students organize their findings to infer a key difference between inner and outer planets. Full description.

These space weather monitors, which detect changes to the Earth?s ionosphere caused by solar flares, can be installed and used by students at their local schools. Students build their own antenna, a simple, low-cost structure. Stanford provides a centralized data repository where students can exchange and discuss data.. The instruments are nicknamed SIDs, for the Sudden Ionospheric Disturbances that ... Full description.
