        Arctic Sea Ice Satellite Observations

        This interactive activity produced for Teachers' Domain features visualizations created from two satellite data sets—spanning 25 years—that show maximum sea ice extent and springtime breakup of sea ice in the Arctic. By analyzing long-term data, scientists can see beyond normal fluctuations and discern real trends. In this activity, users can play animations made from the visualizations and compare the state of Arctic sea ice in 2007 and 1982.

        This media asset is based on material from NASA Earth Observations (NEO).
