Comment on this resource
In this data analysis activity, Students will use NASA satellite data to study temperature and snow-ice coverage in the South Beaufort Sea, Alaska. The data can be used to correlate with USGS ground tracking of polar bears, and to relate this to global change, sea ice changes, and polar bear migration. The lesson includes step-by-step instructions for use of the MY NASA DATA Live Access Server (LAS), ... Full description.

The International Ice Patrol is a branch of the United States Coast Guard. They monitor iceberg danger near the Grand Banks of Newfoundland, and provide the limits of all known ice to the maritime community. This kids page provides an illustrated story of the life cycle of icebergs, as well as a list of questions and answers about icebergs in general. There is also a set of links to other sites that ...

In this activity, students investigate sea level change during glacial maxima during the Ice Ages, and learn how lowered sea level presented additional routes for intercontinental human migration. Summary background information, data and images supporting the activity are available on the Earth Update data site. To complete the activity, students will need to access the Space Update multimedia collection, ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
Scientists have recently been reporting that the average temperature of the Earth has been rising, usually referred to as 'global warming'. What is the evidence for this change? One piece of evidence could come from patterns of snow (on land) and ice (either sea ice floating on the oceans or glaciers on land) on the Earth - if the snow and ice are disappearing, it would indicate rising average temperatures. ...

This slide show will aid in the quest to understand the cause of the Pleistocene ice ages, an example of how scientists have used different types of evidence to understand earth processes. It traces the history of investigation of the ice ages, from the discovery of glacial erratics and moraines in the 1800s, and the theories of orbital variations in solar radiation, to recent investigations of the ...

C-19 iceberg that calved off the Ross Ice shelf and its companion B-15 iceberg, which is anchored near the coast. The two large bergs may have disrupted normal ocean circulation that clears the Ross Sea of seasonal ice during the first months of austral summer. The ice remained in the sea long past previous thaw dates, and created trouble for ships trying to bring in supplies to McMurdo research station ... Full description.

Part of the ongoing research into polar ice trends encompasses evaluation from sophisticated computer models. At the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory at Princeton University, run by NASAs sibling agency, NOAA, researchers modeled a 5,000 year period to see how polar ice might behave over time depending on several different variables. This visualization shows a 120-year slice of that complete ... Full description.
