This self-paced, interactive tutorial guides learners through the decision-making process in locating data that will enable the identification of tabular icebergs, including: selecting the appropriate satellite orbit, and identifying the optimal... (View More)

This self-paced, interactive tutorial examines upwelling in non-coastal regions of the ocean as well as the factors that influence algal blooms. Learners become familiar with ocean dynamics that create a surface deficit of water and cause upwelling,... (View More)

This self-paced, interactive tutorial enables learners to discover practical uses for water vapor imagery from weather satellites. The module introduces the concept and function of the water vapor channel of satellite imagery, and teaches how to... (View More)

This 5-minute animation portrays fluctuations in the cryosphere through observations collected from a variety of satellite-based sensors. The cryosphere consists of those parts of the Earth's surface where water is found in solid form, including... (View More)

This self-paced, interactive tutorial introduces classic weather patterns and unique meteorological events associated with the seasons in the Great Lakes region, while simultaneously demonstrating the utility of remote-sensing data to monitor... (View More)

This self-paced, interactive tutorial explores the use of remote-sensing data to monitor Great Lakes weather and climate. Interactive tools are provided to allow the learner to compare the surface area of the different Great Lakes. Seasonal climate... (View More)

This self-paced, interactive tutorial explores how biological activity helps to determine vertical nutrient distributions in the ocean, examines why upwelling boosts marine productivity, and considers how various physical forces interact to... (View More)

This is an activity about solar rotation and sunspot motion. Learners will use a sphere or ball to model the Sun and compare the observed lateral motion of sunspots to their line-of-sight motion. This is Activity 1 of the Space Weather Forecast... (View More)

This self-paced, interactive tutorial teaches how to estimate the travel time, acceleration, and trajectory of iceberg movement from satellite images. Factors that impact the complex motion of icebergs, such as weather, ice processes and... (View More)
