Using NASA's Near Earth Observatory (NEO): The Role of Snow Cover in Shaping Climate

The Role of Snow Cover in Shaping Climate

In this lab, you will investigate satellite images displaying land surface temperature, snow cover, and reflected shortwave radiation data from the NASA Earth Observation (NEO) website.

Download, explore, and animate these images using ImageJ, a public domain image analysis program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Then use the web-based analysis tools built into NEO to observe, graph, and analyze the relationship between the three variables.
