Title: My NASA Data Lesson Plan: Earth's Energy Budget - Seasonal Cycles in Net Radiative Flux
Url: http://mynasadata.larc.nasa.gov/lesson-plans/50-minute-lessons-sorted...
Publisher: United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Description: This lesson plan uses Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) radiation data to understand seasonal variations in the pattern of net energy input to the Earth system. The net amount of energy received by different parts of the Earth at different times of year determines the type of weather and climate they will experience. The net radiative flux shows the combined effect of the Sun's location and the conditions in the Earth system. The two primary components of the Earth system that affect the net radiative flux are: 1) the type of surface and 2) clouds. This lesson will allow students to explore these variations.
