GLOBE (Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment) is a worldwide, hands-on, primary and secondary school-based science education program. Students can learn to take scientific measurements in the fields of atmospheric science, hydrology, soils, and land cover. They can report their data through the internet, create maps and graphs to analyze the data, and collaborate with scientists ... Full description.

The aerial video and still photography assembled here allows users to see "before" and "after" imagery of the impacts of coastal storms. Oblique images are available for storms from Hurricane Ivan in 2004 to Hurricane Fran in 1996. Each set of images is accompanied by a brief description, and some LIDAR imagery is avaliable. Links to other related sites are also included. Full description.

The friction produced by winds blowing towards the equator on the ocean's surface, together with the effect of the earth's rotation, cause water in the surface layer to move away from the western coast of continental land masses. This offshore moving water is replaced by water which upwells, or flows toward the surface from depths of 50 to 100 meters and more. Users can view an illustration and read ... Full description.

This poster shows how oceanic circulation helps to control global climate. In general, warm surface currents flow from the tropics to higher latitudes, driven mainly by winds and the Earth's rotation. Fast, warm surface currents like the Gulf Stream are concentrated at the western boundary of ocean basins. The poster is part of a collection of images associated with NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory's ... 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.

Milutin Milankovitch formulated a comprehensive mathematical model that calculated latitudinal differences in solar radiation upon the Earth's surface and the corresponding surface temperatures for 600,000 years prior to the year 1800. Readers can learn how Milankovitch developed his theories and how they were confirmed years later by climatic data found in deep-sea sediment cores, which indicated ... Full description.

Desertification, the degradation of formerly productive land into desert, is a complex process. It involves multiple causes, and it proceeds at varying rates in different climates. This web page, produced by the U.S. Geological Survey, features text and photographs that explain what desertification is, how human activities may contribute to it, how satellite imagery is used for monitoring vulnerable ...
