|Event-Based Science: Remote Sensing Activities|
Event-Based Science is a new way to teach science by using newsworthy events to establish the relevance of science topics. Interviews, photographs, web pages, and inquiry-based science activities create a desire to know more about these topics. This collection of activities deals with such topics as damage to agriculture caused by drought, the recovery of forests after a fire, and flooding and the migration of river channels. There are also activities on earthquake hazards, hurricane tracking, the impacts of oil spills, and how to plan an escape route to avoid a volcanic mudflow. Each of these activities uses NASA imagery, in particular LandSat images.
