United States EVI from Summer, 2000 to Spring, 2001.
Traditional satellite-based mapping of vegetation vigor and amount is based on the way vegetation interacts with red and infrared light. Occasionally, however, those two signals are not enough. MODIS measures light reflected from Earth at a variety of wavelengths, and the Arizona researchers incorporate the additional information into their Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI). The EVI has increased sensitivity within very dense vegetation, and it has built-in corrections for several factors that can
Global Warming WebQuest
Global warming has become one of the most pressing issues facing the United States and the world. The following webquest, based on the Koshland Science Museum's exhibit Global Warming: Facts and Our Future, was designed primarily to introduce high school and middle school students to the complicated issues surrounding global warming and climate change. Through participating in a fictitious scenario, students will take an active role in determining how and why climate is changing and how humans m
Volcanoes are big movers and shakers in the business of continually redesigning the Earth's landscape. With no concern for nearby people or ecosystems, volcanoes release toxic gases, climate-altering ash, lava and rock. How does this work? Are scientists getting better at predicting volcanic eruptions? How do areas recover after destruction?
The Fact of Global Warming
Slowly, the globe confronts global warming. Quickly, the globe warms. But can we trust computerized climate models? What's happening to the oceans and the ice? Could warming damage your lungs?
The Greenhouse Effect
Just how do greenhouse gases change the climate? Select the level of atmospheric greenhouse gases during an ice age, in the year 1750, today, or some time in the future and see how the Earth's temperature changes. Add clouds or panes of glass.
