Land Surface Temperature

Description

Touch the ground and you’ll feel the land surface temperature. Satellites can also measure this temperature from space, and this real-time animation from NOAA’s Visualization Lab allows you to watch the daily average on the Magic Planet. The images are generated by averaging all of the data collected by the NOAA AMSU and DMSP SSM/I microwave sensors from 4 different polar-orbiting satellites over a 24 hour period. Blue areas are cool and orange areas are warm.

Pedestal Systems

Bigger. Brighter. The Magic Planet pedestal system is free standing and offers the choice of three globe sizes: 24” (61 cm), 30” (71 cm) and 36” (91 cm). It’s ideal for brighter locations and larger rooms. You can roll it around the school campus with ease, so it can be in the classroom for lessons or in the library for enrichment at other times. It delivers value all day every day.
