View Resource MY NASA DATA Contributed Lesson 13: Does Humidity Affect Cloud Formation?

In this lesson, students download cloud coverage and surface data from the NASA CERES S-COOL website student observation database, then use the Excel spreadsheet program to develop plots of the data. Students explore the relationship between cloud coverage and humidity for low-, mid-, and high-level clouds. The lesson provides detailed procedure, related links and sample graphs, follow-up...

View Resource My NASA Data Lesson Plan: Earth's Energy Budget - Seasonal Cycles in Net Radiative Flux

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...

The NASA CloudSat Mission CD ROM provides a detailed overview of the satellite, its mission, personnel, other satellites in the -A-Train-, science and technology behind the mission, launch information, and its partners.- In addition, the CD ROM contains educational activities, artwork and references, along with a glossary, video clips of CloudSat scientists and other mission personnel describing...

View Resource MY NASA DATA Contributed Lesson 8: Cloud Patterns in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

This lesson is designed to help students gain knowledge in graphing a microset of data, then using the graphs to investigate trends in cloud coverage over a given locale. Students are provided content-related activities to enhance background knowledge in cloud types, and then are provided detailed instructions on how to download data from the MY NASA DATA Live Access Server (LAS) and to use...

View Resource 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...
