In this activity, users examine satellite images from NASA's Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) that show how much ozone is in the atmosphere over the Southern Hemisphere. They interpret the images to identify ozone thinning that develops over this region each summer, and compare its size from year to year. Using freely available image analysis software, ImageJ, users quantify the area of the ... Full description.

In this activity, learners will evaluate seismic activity along major San Francisco faults using satellite images and a fault map of San Francisco. They will identify a location where new housing can be built that is as close to downtown as possible, but far away from active faults. Links to the image and map are provided. This activity is part of the Event-Based Science (EBS): Remote Sensing Activities. ... Full description.

In this activity, learners will use satellite data to investigate the biological health of the ocean. Using a color scale, learners will study ocean color data from NASA's Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) to evaluate the biological activity in the ocean outside of six harbors in the United States. Links to the images are provided. This activity is part of the Event-Based Science (EBS): ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
This is an activity about the spectra of different colors of light. The activity also focuses on the process used to explore scientific questions pertaining to this topic, thereby developing tools and strategies for student inquiry. Learners will make predictions about light behavior. They will then look at different light sources through a spectroscope and record observations on a spectra data sheet. ... Full description.

This is an activity about whether different wavelengths (colors) in the light spectrum heat objects differently. The activity also focuses on the process used to explore scientific questions pertaining to this topic, thereby developing tools and strategies for student inquiry. Learners will make predictions about color and temperature. They will then use a prism notched into a cardboard box to generate ... Full description.

This is an activity about constructing and conducting experiments to determine what part(s) of the spectrum cause a reaction to ultraviolet light-sensitive beads. Learners will design an experiment, present this design for peer review, make revisions, conduct the experiment, and present their findings. This is lesson 5 in a collection, titled In a Different Light. Full description.
