Snow and Ice Cover

Description

Watch an animation of real-time global snow and ice coverage on the Magic Planet, updated daily. Produced by NOAA’s visualization lab, this animation combines Infrared and microwave data from multiple satellites including the NOAA’s GOES Imager and POES AVHRR, US Air Force DMSP/SSMI, and EUMETSAT MSG/SEVIRI sensors. Light blue areas indicate sea ice extent, whereas white colors indicate all other areas of the cryosphere (areas covered by ice, snow, glaciers, or permafrost).

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.
