Development of the satellite technology has enabled us to look at our planet from a new perspective. It provides a large amount of data on spatial and temporal changes of the Earth’s environment.
During this lesson we will take a look at satellite images, explain how they are created and discuss what information can be obtained from them by an Earth scientist. We will analyze changes in the global air temperatures as well as in the carbon dioxide content. As a practical part of the webinar Students will determine the trend line for the maximum annual Arctic and Antarctic sea ice extent. For this part computers will be needed.
