NDVI in North America for August 1993, based off data collected over the 1981-2000 time frame.
MODIS Snow Cover over Europe
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) provides data in 36 spectral bands, some of which are used in an algorithm to map global snow cover. The animation shows the dynamic behavior of the advance and retreat of continental snow cover over Europe for the winter of 2001-02 from MODIS-derived 8-day composite snow maps with a spatial resolution of about 5 km.
SeaWiFS Biosphere: Pacific Ocean
Viewing the Pacific Ocean (data begins at Sept. 97 to June 99)
1992 Daily Ozone from Nimbus-7
In this animation of total ozone, the luminance values of the colors bounding areas of missing data are used in interpolating over these regions. The missing data are mapped to the grayscale portion of the color map.
Hurricanes as Heat Engines
As water vapor evaporates from the warm ocean surface, it is forced upward in the convective clouds that surround the eyewall and rainband regions of a storm. As the water vapor cools and condenses from a gas back to a liquid state, it releases latent heat. The release of latent heat warms the surrounding air, making it lighter and thus promoting more vigorous cloud development.
Hurricane Hernan, September 1, 2002
Hurricane Hernan located 625 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Hernan has maximum sustained winds of 130 knots with gusts to 160 knots. The overall structure of the storm is shown in this animation with rain amounts being shown through color. Yellow represents 0.5 inches of rain or more, green shows 1.0 inches of rain and red shows 2.0 inches or more.
El Nino Sea Surface Temperature, Height, and Wind Anomalies: January 1997 through October 1998
Sea surface height anomaly (SSH) for January 1997 to October 1998. A 3-D straight-on view with arrows showing sea surface wind anomalies.
Global Ozone from 2000 through 2003 (WMS)
This visualization shows the total ozone concentrations for the Earth from January 1, 2000 through December 31, 2003. Low ozone (less than 200 Dobson units) is depicted as regions of dark blue, with high ozone (greater that 330 Dobson units) depicted as yellow and red. The most visible and dynamic feature of the ozone distribution is the ozone hole that forms over Antarctica during September of each year. The amount of ozone in the stratosphere over Antarctica is reduced during this period due t
River Erosion Prototype
A series of animations of river erosion through soil layers of differing properties
Advanced Chemical Experimentation and Instrumentation, Fall 2002
Advanced experimentation, with particular emphasis on chemical synthesis and the fundamentals of quantum chemistry illustrated through molecular spectroscopy. Instruction and practice in the written and oral presentation of experimental results.
Addition of 3 Numbers
Worksheet to give pupils practice in adding three numbers up to a total of 12.
Artists - Quiz
Children will learn about artists and their work and will hopefully be motivated to look up these artists to learn more.
Formation of the Placenta
An animation depicting formation of the placenta following fertilization. Guide questions - How does the placenta form a barrier between maternal and fetal circulations? What are the structural elements that form the barrier between maternal and fetal circulations? University of Cincinnati College of Medicine Reproductive Physiology Modules: Part 6.2.1.
Actions and Concentrations of Steroid Hormones
Guide questions - What are the actions of androgens during fetal life, at puberty and during adulthood? How do plasma concentrations of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone change during adulthood? What are the principal endocrine secretions of the testis and in what cells are they produced? University of Cincinnati College of Medicine Reproductive Physiology Modules: Part 5.1.4.
Information and Service Design Symposium
The UC Berkeley School of Information hosts a symposium to launch the new Information and Service Design (ISD) program at the I School. The symposium features the best graduate student papers on the Information and Services Economy. Introducing the ISD Program and the Symposium AnnaLee Saxenian, Dean, School of Information Bob Glushko, Adjunct Professor, School of Information Christo Sims - Defining Services for Designers This paper is part of a larger effort to improve methodologies for servic
Career Gates: Logistics
Career Gates: Logistics highlights various careers in logistics that are available in and around the Lehigh Valley. Paul Davis from Nestle discusses how Nestle owns their own trucks and that his division manages using those trucks to deliver products to stores. Michele Hamershock talks about the account coordinators in her department and their responsibility to replenish stores with products based on their movement statistics. In addition to Nestle, this clip highlights logistics for DSC and Coc
Jakobshavn Glacier Retreat (WMS)
Since measurements of Jakobshavn Isbrae were first taken in 1850, the glacier has gradually receded, finally coming to rest at a certain point for the past 5 decades. However, from 1997 to 2003, the glacier has begun to recede again, this time almost doubling in speed. The finding is important for many reasons. For starters, as more ice moves from glaciers on land into the ocean, it raises sea levels. Jakobshavn Isbrae is Greenlands largest outlet glacier, draining 6.5 percent of Greenlands ice
Science Writers' Guide to Landsat 7
Landsat 7 is advancing several areas of Earth science, mass balance, cloud and aerosol heights, as well as land topography and vegetation characteristics. including monitoring croplands and mapping Antarctic ice streams. This guide was produced for science writers and the media and profiles several Landsat 7 research projects, and provides background and contact information.
