|GLOBE 2003 Teacher's Guide: Land Cover/Biology Chapter|
This chapter of the GLOBE Teacher's Guide provides the measurement protocols for collecting research quality data on land cover and constructing land cover maps using Landsat scenes. K-12 students from all over the world are participating in the GLOBE program by taking environmental measurements at their schools and sharing their data via the Internet. NASA scientists use GLOBE data in their research and provide feedback to the students. The protocols are imbedded in an integrated approach that includes background information and learning activities and that offers teachers an example of an inquiry based research activity.
