This video is the first installment in the GLOBE Program's webinar series on the basics of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The series focuses on how GLOBE teaching resources are aligned to the standards. Webinar 1 explains NGSS Conceptual Shifts 1 (Science Education Should Reflect the Interconnected Nature of Science as it is Practiced and Experienced in the Real World) and 2 (The Next Generation Science Standards are student performance expectations - NOT curriculum).

In this lesson students will learn to understand the following: 1) Infrared rays from the sun enter Earth's atmosphere. The gas carbon dioxide (CO2), which is given off by oxygen-breathing organisms and produced by the burning of fossil fuels, traps the sun's warmth within Earth's atmosphere. This phenomenon is known as the greenhouse effect. 2) The greenhouse effect is important to life on Earth because it provides our planet with the warmth it needs for animal and plant life to thrive. 3) The burning of certain fuels creates excess CO2, which traps even more heat within Earth's atmosphere, possibly creating a phenomenon known as global warming, which may be harmful to life on Earth.

The Integrated Data Viewer (IDV) is a software framework for analyzing and visualizing geoscience data sets collected by the Unidata Program. The IDV may be used to display and analyze satellite imagery, gridded data, surface observations, balloon soundings, radar data and more. Most of the data are provided in real time or near-real time. The IDV can display data anywhere on the globe with a wide selection of map projections and map backgrounds including a 3D spherical globe. Over 20 kinds of 2D and 3D data displays allow users to create cross-sections, profiles, animations and value read-outs of multi-dimensional data sets. A useful feature of the site is the ability to save displays in "bundle" files for use in classroom and lab exercises. Thorough and easy-to-follow directions for IDV installation and use are provided and annual training workshops are offered by Unidata. The data viewer is available for a free download, and data sets are available to participants who are affiliated with a degree-granting institution or a non-profit institution with an education and/or research mission. This resource is part of the Using Data collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/usingdata/
