Convection Connection
Restricted Use
Copyright Restricted
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

During this project, students observe convection current by performing two lab experiments. As a result of these activities, students develop an understanding of the process of convection, and apply the knowledge to processes in the atmosphere.

Digital Elevation Models
Restricted Use
Copyright Restricted
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

In this lesson, students use ImageJ to create a 3D representation of a digital elevation model, then calibrate the image from known elevations. Using a slightly altered version of the digital elevation model (DEM), students compare what the elevation of the glacier might look like 100 years from now and explore how a DEM can be used to analyze changes in elevations over time.
