Carbon Monoxide and Population Density DLESE Reviewed Collection
This lesson is designed to help students gain knowledge in using the MY NASA DATA Live Access Server (LAS) to specify and download a microset of data, then to use the data to investigate the carbon monoxide level at a fixed latitude. Using the LAS, students will download data, and then will use Excel to create maps of the carbon monoxide level for a particular latitude. They will then look for trends and explore the population density for selected points along the latitude (urban or rural). The lesson provides detailed procedure, related links and sample graphs, follow-up questions and extensions, and Teacher Notes.
