  1. NASA’s NEO and Earth Observatory Tassia Owen Tassia.owen@nasa.gov

  2. OUTLINE 1. Introduction 2. What is the Earth Observatory? 3. What is NEO? 4. NEO Workshop & Tutorial 5. Conclusion

  3. INTRODUCTION Technology is an everyday thing in our lives Teenagers using smartphones at Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge to get more information form an interpretive display. Image courtesy of USFWS

  4. What is the Earth Observatory and what does it have to do with NEO? http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/ • Image of the Day • Features • Natural Hazards • Global Maps

  5. Global Maps

  6. Global Maps Animations

  7. Makes Suggestions for Related Data Sets and Provides Information

  8. WHAT IS NEO? • NASA Earth Observations (NEO) • A collection of current global NASA satellite data imagery that can be easily accessed and utilized by a variety of users and applications. • Addresses the needs of data users who do not posses the expertise or tools to handle raw data. • Target Audiences • Formal & informal educators • Museums & Science Centers • Science communicators • Citizen scientists

  9. NEO IN THE CLASSROOM • As a tool NEO can be used in different subjects pertaining the Earth Science Class. • Subjects like: A) Maps as a tool B) Earth’s Atmosphere Exploration C) Weather Effects D) Water Temperature E) Topography F) Oceanography G) Satellites and Remote Sensing

  10. PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVE • empower formal and informal educators with tools that will enrich their teaching experience and curriculum. • Gain awareness of the NASA Earth Observations or NEO site (http://neo.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/Search.html) Let’s take a tour of NEO

  11. Analyzing Data • Website: http://neo.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/Search.html • An example, • Go to – > Oceans > Chlorophyll Concentration • Click on, Analyze this image

  12. What do you see? • Can you understand it by itself? Would it make more sense to compare it with something else? • Fore example, go to – > Oceans > Sea Surface Temperature (Make sure Dates and instrument Match what you chose for Chlorophyl!) • Click on, Analyze this image • Click on, Configure/Launch analysis

  13. >Click on, Launch analysis • (You can download the datasets and do the analysis on your classroom without the need of a internet connection by clicking the download button and following the directions) • Focus on a place? Select – Zoom & Roam (optional, can be useful for place-based education)

  14. >Select – Plot transect • What relationship do you see here between chlorophyll concentration and sea surface temperature? • Why does chlorophyll go down when sea surface temperature goes up? • What else would you compare?

  15. Questions?
