This 5-minute animation portrays fluctuations in the cryosphere through observations collected from a variety of satellite-based sensors. The cryosphere consists of those parts of the Earth's surface where water is found in solid form, including areas of snow, sea ice, glaciers, permafrost, ice sheets, and icebergs. In these regions, surface temperatures remain below freezing for a portion of each ... Full description.

This is a lesson that uses the study of sunspots to show how a scientific theory develops and how current technology might be used to support it. Learners will use E.W. Maunder's theory regarding the correlation between the numbers of sunspots and Earth's climate by considering a set of clues based on Maunder's data. Three activities are included, starting with graphing over 387 years of sunspot data, ... Full description.
