Here you are introduced to the Earth Observing System (EOS) satellites. These satellites make long-term observations of land, oceans, ice, atmosphere, and life. This gives scientists data to make predictions about Earth's climate.
Tropical twisters come from hurricanes. They gather energy over warm ocean water. Once they reach 74 mph they are classified as hurricanes. Satellites study and monitor hurricanes and other climatic events.
Lesson 6 Temperature, Pressure, and Cloud Formation
You may be familiar with how water is always cycling around, through, and above the Earth, continually changing from liquid water to water vapor to ice. One way to envision the water cycle is to follow a drip of water around as it moves on its way.
