 My NASA Data User Contributed Lesson 17: Analysis of Atmospheric Conditions for a High Mountain Retreat This lesson is designed to help students gain knowledge in accessing current weather data and in using the MY NASA DATA Live Access Server (LAS) to specify and download historical satellite data. Students then use the data to examine the relationship between altitude, atmospheric pressure, temperature and humidity at a particular location. In this lesson, weather data from ground-based and... http://mynasadata.larc.nasa.gov/lesson-plans/50-minute-lesso...
 My NASA Data User Contributed Lesson 18: Does cloud type affect rainfall? Scientists have studied the physical properties of clouds and have developed instruments on board satellites to characterize the types of clouds they see below. Some satellites have instruments that allow them to measure rainfall as well. For this lesson, students will hypothesize what types of clouds they believe will create the most precipitation (rainfall) over Nashville, TN. Students use the... http://mynasadata.larc.nasa.gov/lesson-plans/50-minute-lesso...
 My NASA Data Lesson Plan: Using Imported Data in Excel: Plot Atmospheric Temperature This user-contributed tutorial provides detailed instructions on how to make Excel graphs of data that is imported from the Internet. The tutorial contains sample screen images to assist in performing each step. The tutorial includes importing a second set of data and adding it as another series on the original graph. The tutorial includes questions to be answered based on the atmospheric lapse... https://mynasadata.larc.nasa.gov/docs/L1_Excel_Starkins.doc
 My NASA Data Lesson Plan: Seasons and Cloud Cover: Are They Related? This lesson plan uses NASA satellite data to correlate cloud cover over Africa to the solar declination. The four seasons on Earth have a scientific basis. The earth is tilted 23.5 degrees from vertical. This tilt and the Earth's orbit around the sun are the reasons for the seasons. Earth's tilt and orbital position cause differing angles at which the sun's rays hit the surface of the Earth. As... http://mynasadata.larc.nasa.gov/lesson-plans/50-minute-lesso...
 My NASA Data Lesson Plans MY NASA DATA (Mentoring and inquirY using NASA Data) is an effort to develop microsets of Earth science data that are interesting and useful to the K-12 and citizen scientist communities. The datasets can be used with existing curriculum and enable students to practice math skills using real measurements of Earth system variables and processes. The lesson plans consist of units created by NASA... http://mynasadata.larc.nasa.gov
