This chapter describes how to set a scale and measure distances and areas on satellite images. Using ImageJ, a freely available image analysis program that runs on most operating systems, users set the spatial calibration of an image, then select... (View More)

Students explore how mathematical descriptions of the physical environment can be fine-tuned through testing using data. In this activity, student teams obtain satellite data measuring the Earth's albedo, and then input this data into a... (View More)

Students will examine two satellite images of their local watershed taken at different points in time and use this data to learn about changes in the watershed, particularly in land cover. Next, they describe how these changes have had positive or... (View More)
