Interactive Education Module on Climate Change Effects: The US Forest Service's Climate Change Resource Center (CCRC) has released a new interactive online education module on climate change effects on forests and grasslands. The CCRC's first education module provides a basic climate change foundation, and this new module builds on that foundation, examining climate change effects around the country. See http://www.fs.usda.gov/ccrc/climate-basics/education for details.

Quantifying Changes in the Land Over Time: A Landsat Classroom Activity (grades 7-10). This NASA-developed classroom activity enables students to analyze land cover change; helps them grasp the extent, significance, and consequences of land cover change; and introduces them to the perspective of space-based observations.

NASA Tutorial (middle and high school, undergraduate). Good introduction to Remote Sensing concepts, with examples of many varied applications, including Meteorology, Oceanography, Hydrology, Geography, Geology, and Astronomy. Also includes a section on GIS.

Canadian Centre for Remote Sensing Tutorials (high school, undergraduate). Concepts of Remote Sensing, including applications in agriculture, forestry, geology, hydrology, meteorology …

The GLOBE Program (Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment) A worldwide hands-on, primary and secondary school-based science and education program. GLOBE promotes and supports students, teachers and scientists to collaborate on inquiry-based investigations of the environment and the Earth system working in close partnership with NASA and NSF Earth System Science Projects (ESSPs) in study and research about the dynamics of Earth's environment.

Satellite Meteorology Modules (middle and high school) Using satellite meteorology to introduce middle and high school students to geoscience, physics, chemistry and applied mathematics.

NASA Earth Observatory Imagery and applications related to “Atmosphere, Oceans, Lands, Energy, and Life”.

Remote Sensing Image Galleries

EarthNow! Landsat Image Viewer . EarthNow! displays data received from the Landsat 7 satellite as it passes over North America.. When a Landsat satellite passes within range of the ground station at the USGS Center for Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Data Center in Sioux Falls, SD, images are down-linked and displayed in 'near-real' time. When no satellites are within range, the most recent pass is displayed. This fascinating web site lets us 'see' what the satellite is seeing. A great site for educators, scientists, or anyone with an interest in satellite imagery.
