Alternatively, you may wish to download the file: isee-tutorial-GLOBECC.ppt (PowerPoint 1.2MB Dec19 08), which uses the biomass model to demonstrate isee player capabilities. This tutorial is a PowerPoint presentation, which can be printed and distributed to students.

Other Carbon Storage Activities

The activity presented here is part of a larger set of activities created by the GLOBE Carbon Cycle team which looks at the carbon cycle in terrestrial ecosystems. There are also many other ways to use the forest service carbon data.

Case Studies with Tool

Other EET chapters that contain related material include the following:

Visalizing Carbon PathwaysUse NASA's Earth Observatory, global map collection, NASA NEO and ImageJ to build several animations of satellite data that illustrate carbon pathways through the Earth system.

Using Satellite Images to Understand Earth's AtmosphereUse ImageJ to create an animation showing the change in monthly concentration of aerosols over the course of a year and compare it to a similar animation showing change in carbon monoxide concentration.

Shrinking Forest - Growing ProblemUse time-series Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images to create a color composite image showing the oldest to most recently deforested areas in the Amazon rainforest.
