Teaching Tips

This may be a good video to introduce how satellite observations complement scientific research and supply valuable information to create a foundation for understanding global climate change. For younger audiences you may find additional online resources here [link http://climate.nasa.gov/kids/bigQuestions/oceanHappening/].

Recommend that educator narrate video and explain false coloration observed from satellite images of different wavelengths.
