View Resource Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment

The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) mission uses twin satellites to make detailed measurements of Earth's gravity field. GRACE materials include a description of the mission, research projects, and personnel. There are also links to news articles, publications, datasets, and software tools for processing gravity data.

View Resource Ocean Surface Topography From Space (TOPEX/Poseidon Missions)

A joint US and France project, the TOPEX-Poseidon satellites continuously measure sea surface height. The oceans store and transport solar heat, helping to keep Earth's climate in balance. The overall shape of the oceans' "hills" and "valleys" is called ocean surface topography, or OST. Precise knowledge of OST is essential to predict the effects of catastrophic storms. Educational resources...

View Resource Exploring the Edge of Our Solar System: IBEX Mission (Poster Back)

This poster outlines the major mission highlights of the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) mission, a Small Explorer Earth-orbiting spacecraft that is designed to map the distant boundary between the solar wind from our Sun and the interstellar medium. This poster supports a full length planetarium show about the IBEX mission and the boundary of the Solar System. Each short activity/product...

View Resource Swift Launch Lithograph

This one-page litho describes the science conducted by NASA-s Swift satellite mission and provides an activity for students. It was produced in September 2004 for distribution at the Swift Launch. Swift's primary goal is to unravel the mystery of gamma ray bursts.

View Resource From the Top of the World...to the Bottom of the Food Web

These four teaching units show how NASA satellites measure ocean productivity. Topics cover: marine food web from producers to consumers and decomposers; phytoplankton diversity, classification and adaptations; studying photosynthesis with technology, from microscopes to satellites; and biology of algal blooms. Units include: background, lesson plans using on-line data or instructions for...
