View Resource 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...

View Resource 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...

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 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 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...
