Some additional combinations of NEO datasets to explore include the following:
- Net Radiation, Snow Cover and Solar Insolation
- Sea Surface Temperature and Net Primary Productivity
- Sea Surface Temperature and Water Vapor
- Reflected Short Wave Radiation and Cloud Cover (cirrus or total)
- Sea Ice and Snow Cover over the course of a season
- Solar Insolation (incoming radiation) and Reflected Short Wave Radiation
- Sea Surface Temperature, Water Vapor, Outgoing Long Wave Radiation, and leaf cover for summer versus winter in the Northern Hemisphere
Rainforests at a Crossroads NEO exercise #3Limits to Plant Growthexplores the relationship between Solar Insolation, Land Surface Temperature and Rainfall.
Import and overlay some of the NEO datasets into Google Earth.
