MY NASA DATA: Validation of Stratospheric 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 investigate stratospheric ozone (ozone hole in particular). Using the LAS, student-groups will download a microset of stratospheric ozone data collected by the SAGE III instrument for a particular location. They will also plot a microset of field-campaign data used for validation. The two sets of data will be plotted using a graphing calculator, and analyzed for correlation between the two microsets. The lesson provides detailed procedure, related links and sample graphs, follow-up questions and extensions, and Teacher Notes.
