Creating and Analyzing Graphs of Tropospheric Ozone 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 compare the ozone levels of selected regions around the world. Students locate and identify geographical regions using latitude and longitude; then, in groups, students create and analyze graphs of ozone levels for the identified location. They identify any differences between the graphs then discuss possible causes. The lesson provides detailed procedure, related links and sample graphs, follow-up questions and extensions, and Teacher Notes.
