Going Further


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.

Other Tools

Import and overlay some of the NEO datasets into Google Earth.
