Nous, Albert P.
This document focuses on using satellite images from space in the classroom. There are two types of environmental satellites routinely broadcasting: (1) Polar-Orbiting Operational Environmental Satellites (POES), and (2) Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES). Imaging and visualization techniques provide students with a better understanding of Earth science and develop thinking skills. Classroom use of images from space include student activities using image orientation and image analysis. The appendix contains images of the earth and figures of satellite orbit and positioning.
