How Might You Investigate Scientific Phenomena?
ES0205  Introduction

Satellites orbiting Earth capture an astonishing amount of information about our planet every day. For more than a quarter century, instruments on satellites have been recording data about Earth. By viewing animations of monthly images of these data, you can discover patterns and consider how the different types of data might be related.

  !   Click the image to see seven years of monthly satellite images for four different types of data. Use the animation control bar below the image to step through the animation and look for patterns among the four types of data.
