There are many other data
resources available on the web. Below is a list of
websites that provide climate related scientific data with
relatively friendly user interfaces. These data resources
are particularly useful for upper level students,
long-term projects, or capstone experiences.
provides customized Earth Science data. They have over
700,000 data products that are easily searchable (see the
'Data Guides' under the Data tab for help and instructions).
They have recently added a number of climate change data
products and resources. Go tohttp://eos-webster.sr.unh.eduand use the 'Data' tab to explore the
EOS-EarthData data holdings.
Climate Analysis Network (SCAN)
a nationwide soil moisture and climate information system
operated by the USDA NRCS. A standard SCAN site will collect
precipitation, air temperature, soil temperature, soil
moisture, snow depth, snow water equivalent, wind speed and
direction, relative humidity, barometric pressure, and solar
radiation. Go tohttp://www.wcc.nrcs.usda.gov/scanandclick
on the map to access data for a specific SCAN site.
Brook Ecosystem Study
Brook is a long-term ecological research site in White
Mountain National Forest of New Hampshire. Research at
Hubbard Brook has produced some of the longest continuous
data bases on hydrology, biology, geology, and chemistry of
the forest and its associated aquatic ecosystems. Go to http://www.hubbardbrook.organd click 'Data' then
'Data Resources' to search the data holdings.
Enhanced Investigations for Climate Change Education
U.S. Geological Survey provides access to current,
past, and future water data, maps, and publications.
They also provide information on recent water projects and
events around the country, as well as educational resources. Go to http://water.usgs.gov
and click the 'Data' tab to search their data holdings.
Dam Bureau manages dams, lake levels, stream flows, and
surface and groundwater in the state of New Hampshire. They
also provide real-time data of many water and climate
variables at dam locations throughout New Hampshire. Go to http://www2.des.state.nh.us/RTi_Home and
click the map to choose a dam location and view the real-time
Sea Ice Box
The Sea Ice Box is a
part of the Ice Planet Earth project, which works to promote
understanding of Earth's polar regions. With this
interface you can compare sea ice extent between different
months and years.
Go to http://iceplanetearth.org/seaicebox/index.jsp
and follow the links next to either the Arctic and
Antarctic to view ice extent visualizations
ImageJ is a free
image processing program that can display, edit, analyze,
process, save, and print images. Use it to calculate area and
pixel statistics, do geometric transformations, spatial and
color calibration, etc.
