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.
