MY NASA DATA: How Does the Earth's Energy Budget Relate to Polar Ice? DLESE Reviewed Collection
By matching maps of snow and ice amounts with maps of net radiation flux for the same time frame, students will use the Live Access Server to explore how the net radiation flux has affected the snow and ice amounts in the Northern Hemisphere, as well as how the presence of snow can affect the net radiation flux due to surface reflection. Detailed Procedure and Materials, Vocabulary linked to an On-line glossary, and Teacher Notes are provided.
