In the winter of 1999-2000, relatively little snow cover blanketed North America, and it melted early. Users can read and view satellite imagery that discusses how NASA's Terra satellite and its Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS) were able to record this phenomenon, and how spring snow cover data can be used to predict flood or drought conditions.

Visitors can learn about the relatively new field of imaging spectroscopy, which allows specific absorption features, caused by chemical bonds in materials, to be mapped spatially. Topics include an introduction to the procedure, environmental applications, vegetation and biota mapping, lithologic, and mineral mapping. A set of links provides access to reports, accompanied by spectroscopic images, ... Full description.

Visitors to this site can view satellite imagery and read an account of how remote sensing was employed to evaluate the extent of flooding and sediment load in rivers on the coastal plain of North Carolina as a result of Hurricane Floyd in September, 1999. This feature is part of NASA's Earth Observatory, a publication that focuses on Earth's climate and environmental change. Full description.

Vortices of water, called "eddies," form off the northwestern coast of North America in the winter, and are particularly large during El Nino winters. Users can read and view satellite imagery which explains how these eddies carry nutrient-rich water offshore, providing nourishment for phytoplankton, microscopic plants which form the foundation of the marine food chain. This is part of NASA's Earth ... Full description.

A study of the geology of Mars should reveal answers to such questions as how Mars developed into the planet we see today and what accounts for the differences and similarities between Earth and Mars. Visitors to this site can learn about ancient magnetism recently discovered by the Mars Global Surveyor that suggests the planet was once more dynamic and Earth-like with a magnetic field shielding the ...

Comment on this resource
After Antarctica, Greenland's ice cap contains the second largest mass of frozen fresh water in the world. Based on new research using NASA's airborne laser altimeter, scientists have identified pronounced thinning of Greenland's ice cap. This new research indicates enough ice loss to cause a measurable rise in sea levels. This site, produced by NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio, features text, ... Full description.
