You will now have a chance to make your own analysis of changes in Arctic sea ice using visualizations from NASA satellite data. With your partner, select one of the following questions to investigate:
Now go to the Arctic Sea Ice Satellite Observations Interactive. If you selected question 1, go to the "March 1982–2007" tab. If you selected question 2, go to the "June 1982–2007" tab. Play the animation (several times, as needed) to see how the sea ice has changed during this 25-year time span. You can also look at the individual years, and compare 1982 and 2007 using the "Show Comparison 1982 & 2007" button.
After viewing the selected animation, discuss with your partner any significant changes you observed. Then, write down your findings.
