This lesson plan uses NASA satellite data to contrast amounts of cloud coverage over different climate regions in Africa. It introduces the circulation pattern of Hadley Cells and the band of convergence and convection called the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ). The lesson also discusses how frequent cloud cover and precipitation occur along the ITCZ and how climate affects the people living ... Full description.

This lesson plan uses NASA Clouds and Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) instrument percent coverage surface data with a world map to locate landmasses and bodies of water at the Earth's Equator. When using satellites to study Earth system processes, especially atmospheric processes, it is important to know what is the background that one is seeing on the Earth. This lesson provides an introduction ... Full description.

: This lesson plan uses Clouds and Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) cloud data and a weather map to explore cloud coverage during a winter storm. When atmospheric scientists, including meteorologists, study weather patterns, they may use several different sources of information. For example, in studying storm patterns, they may use a combination of Earth Observing Satellite data, such as from ... Full description.

This lesson plan uses Clouds and Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) radiation data to understand seasonal variations in the pattern of net energy input to the Earth system. The net amount of energy received by different parts of the Earth at different times of year determines the type of weather and climate they will experience. The net radiative flux shows the combined effect of the Sun's location ... Full description.

This is an abstract for a paper that reports on a general strategy for making the learning environment in large (and small) lectures more effective by increasing student involvement. Researchers have used and evaluated the effectiveness of Microcomputer-Based Interactive Lecture Demonstrations (ILDs) in introductory physics lectures since 1989 and have found them to be very successful for teaching ...

This site provides a summary of an on-going ecological biocomplexity research project that began in the mid-1970's. Coined the "Portal Project," because of its location near the southeastern Arizona town of Portal, research has been conducted on 24 plots for over 20 years. This research primarily focuses on the interactions of ants, rodents, and desert plant species. The summary provided on this website ... Full description.

The Center for the Study of Institutions, Population and Environmental Change (CIPEC) is involved in a variety of demographic, geographic, and land use research efforts. The biocomplexity project concentrates on using several types of mathematical modeling to inventory and predict land use / land cover patterns. The goal of this research is to compare the strengths, weaknesses, and unique advantages ... Full description.
