# Simplified Clinometer Interactive

In this virtual field experience, learners construct and use a clinometer to measure the height of a tree on level ground using the GLOBE protocol for measuring tree and shrub height. This resource is part of The GLOBE Program Biosphere Protocol... (View More)

# Earth's Carbon Metabolism-Revealed

In this problem set, learners will use a map of satellite data of Earth's carbon "metabolism" or Net Primary Production to answer a series of questions about carbon removal. Answer key is provided. This is part of Earth Math: A Brief Mathematical... (View More)

# Water Walk

In this field activity, students conduct a visual survey of a hydrology study site, and collect information about land cover and water quality. These observations are used to stimulate research-able questions about land cover and water chemistry... (View More)

# Zooming In

Students examine a series of remotely-sensed images of the US, scaling from the continent to San Francisco, and distinguish the concepts of scale and resolution. At greater resolution, students are able to identify different land classes on the map,... (View More)

# A Changing Watershed

Students will examine two satellite images of their local watershed taken at different points in time and use this data to learn about changes in the watershed, particularly in land cover. Next, they describe how these changes have had positive or... (View More)

# Back to the Future

Students will compare aerial photos of their area from the past with current photos, noting differences and then conducting ground truth investigations to determine what happened. Finally, students will use the information they gather about past... (View More)

# Learning to Look, Looking to See

In this activity serving as an introduction to remote sensing, students list what they remember seeing in a familiar environment, check their accuracy, and discuss the results. Then they apply their experiences and new skills to an unfamiliar... (View More)
