Measuring Sea Surface Temperature with Satellites
Students will learn how satellites collect data and communicate that information with researchers on Earth. Students will use this data to create a thermal map using isotherms. Lastly, students will use the satellite data to determine changes in sea surface temperature.
HS-PS4-2 Evaluate questions about the advantages of using a digital transmission and storage of information.
HS-ESS-1 Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the availability of natural resources, occurrence of natural hazards, and changes in climate influenced human activity.
