Teachers who attend the workshop and then implement EET lessons are eligible for a
Learn how to access satellite images displaying land surface temperature, snow cover, and reflected shortwave radiation data from the NASA Earth Observation (NEO) website. Download, explore, and animate these images using ImageJ, a public domain image analysis program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Then utilize the Web‐based analysis tools built into NEO to observe, graph, and analyze the relationship between the three variables. This lesson addresses content and skills for geography, earth science, and math and is part of the Earth Exploration Toolbook.
