Satellite Observations of Arctic Change is a set of eight timelapse maps. Each of the maps shows representations of changes based on information collected via satellite imagery. The maps included in the set are:
- Frozen Ground
- Sea Ice
- Sea Ice Average
- Water Vapor
- Snow Cover
- Near-surface Air Temperatures
- Annual Minimum Exposed Snow and Ice
Applications for Education
Satellite Observations of Arctic Change could be a useful set of maps to use in a lesson on climate change. The maps alone don't explain what caused changes. The assignment for students to complete is to research the factors contributing to the changes.
