In this episode, the tree house detectives plan a trip to Florida and encounter problems in trying to predict the weather. Students learn about violent storms, such as hurricanes and tornadoes, weather fronts, global wind patterns, and climates. While solving the case, they will discover that predicting the weather is not predictable at all! The NASA SCIence Files series introduces students in grades ... Full description.

In this lesson, students create graphs to explore how hurricanes extract heat energy from the ocean surface. It is designed to help students gain knowledge in using the MY NASA DATA Live Access Server (LAS) to specify, download and use a microset of data. Students will make graphs from the data microset, then use the graphs to investigate locations along the track of Hurricane Rita where lowered Sea ... Full description.

This lithograph shows the break-off of a large iceberg from the Pine Island Glacier in West Antarctica. This event occurred between November 4th and 12th, 2001, and provides powerful evidence of rapid changes underway in this area of Antarctica. The three images presented were acquired by the vertical-viewing (nadir) camera of the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) instrument aboard NASA's ... Full description.
