Visualizing Carbon Pathways

Type of Resource



This activity introduces students to visualization capabilities available through NASA's Earth Observatory, global map collection, NASA NEO and ImageJ. Using these tools, students build several animations of satellite data that illustrate carbon pathways through the Earth system.

Performance Expectations

HS-ESS3-6   Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity.
