These activities give students a background for Remote Sensing as a tool of science and then have them use Google Earth and NASA data to study glaciers.

Collection Contents


A detailed Google Earth tour of glacier change over the last 50 years is given in class as an introduction. Students are then asked to select from a group of glaciers and create their own Google Earth tour exploring key characteristics and evident changes in that glacier.
