Earth Science Week 2010 - Exploring Energy

"Exploring Energy" is the theme of this year's Earth Science Week, Oct. 10-16. The American Geological Institute hosts Earth Science Week annually in cooperation with various sponsors to engage people in Earth science and encourage stewardship of Earth. NASA develops, deploys and manages an array of satellites that monitor and measure energy as it flows into, through and out of the Earth system. During Earth Science Week, a series of short videos will be posted to NASA's Earth Science Week website. Aimed at educators, the videos will present activities for different grade levels that highlight how NASA explores Earth's energy, such as the energy that fuels hurricanes.

For archived Earth Science Week material, please visit the Earth Science Educator Resource Gallery.

Exploring Energy in the Classroom: Hurricanes How do hurricanes get their energy? NASA hurricane scientist Dr. Jeff Halverson explains how hurricanes draw energy from the ocean surface.  The video also provides an example of a classroom activity that allows students to map the change in sea surface temperature over time. This activity from My NASA Data uses actual data gathered from Hurricane Rita, which struck the Gulf of Mexico in September 2005.    Exploring Energy in the Classroom: Hurricanes

Exploring Energy in the Classroom: Infrared How does NASA    Exploring Energy in the Classroom: Infrared

How does NASA "see" thermal radiation? This video explores what infrared energy is and how NASA detects it to study our Earth's systems more completely. Satellite measurements over time allow scientists to study seasonal changes in local and global temperatures, as well as longer term trends in temperature over time. This video also includes a look at the experiment Sir William Herschel conducted that led to the discovery of infrared.
