Trends in Snow Cover and Temperature in Alaska
From NASA My NASA Data
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, and then to use the data to compare NASA satellite data observations with surface measurements of snow cover and temperature. Students will obtain snow cover and surface temperature data for a locale in Alaska, plot the data, and then investigate seasonal trends in snow cover, and the relationship between snow cover and surface temperature at that locale. The lesson provides detailed procedure, related links and sample graphs, follow-up questions and extensions, and Teacher Notes.
