The National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) offers text descriptions of composite, individual and archival Total Solar Irradiance (TSI) data from various satellites. TSI describes the radiant energy emitted by the sun over all wavelengths that falls each second on one square meter outside the earth's atmosphere. Data is gathered as this radiant energy is absorbed into a cavity on a satellite and is ... Full description.

In this activity, students use a microcomputer connected to a light sensor and temperature probe to explore the reflection and absorption of radiation for different surfaces. Students follow instructions in this guided inquiry based lab and are then asked to design an experiment of their own to either test the reflectivity of sand, soils, water and other materials or to investigate the effect of different ...

This site from SERC's Starting Point presents sample Gallery Walk questions about weather map interpretation. Students explore several weather parameters including fronts, pressure cells, and precipitation. Groups synthesize various weather variables, create a weather forecast, and present the material in either an oral or written assignment. The questions are organized according to the cognitive ...
