GLOBE Earth System Poster

GLOBE Earth System Poster

This online version of the earth system poster is based on the large Pathfinder dataset collected by NASA, NOAA and other agencies. Years included are 1987 and 2007. It features a series of interactive maps that allow students to investigate global patterns and variability in solar energy, surface air temperature, precipitation, cloud cover, soil moisture and vegetation over the course of a year. Map images are arranged in a WIST (Web Image Slide Tray) made up of columns and rows. For comparative study, there are controls to view monthly snapshots of each scientific parameter in a multitude of ways. A downloadable, printable version is also provided.
