Intrusive Igneous Rocks
Most magma does not extrude onto Earth’s surface but cools slowly deep inside Earth. This magma seeps into crevices in existing rock to form intrusive igneous rocks. Experts provide a graphic illustration of this process and explain the types and textures of rocks such as granite, obsidian, and quartz. Once again, plate tectonics is shown to be involved in the process.

At Boston University, a team of researchers is using MODIS data to create global estimates of the green leaf area of Earths vegetation and how much sunlight the leaves are absorbing. Called LAI, for Leaf Area Index, and FPAR, for Fraction of absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation, both pieces of information are necessary for understanding how sunlight interacts with the Earths vegetated surfaces-from th
