Great Lakes Snow Analysis Collaborative Network
From NASA My NASA Data
The onset of winter in higher latitude regions of North America brings snow to the area around the Great Lakes. The amount of snow is dependent on many variables. One of the most significant factors determining snowfall amount in the Great Lakes drainage basin is the surface temperature of the lakes. In this lesson, students will extrapolate information from selected MY NASA DATA and NOAA websites and compare data on snow and temperature in the Great Lakes. They will analyze trends and patterns using measurements from maps and raw data and locate their school's GPS coordinates using Google Earth.
