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.

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.
