Earth Observation Detective

EO Detective is a cross-curricular activity supporting aspects of science, geography, maths and computing.  Designed by the NCEO with the Natural Environment Research Council and the UK Space Agency, it will demonstrate how a vantage poin in space, such as the International Space Station, provides a unique perspective from which people can monitor environmental processes and change.

Students will be given access to photographs taken by astronauts and to images and data collected by satellites during fifty years of observing the Earth from space and use these images to investigate the effects of natural and man-made environmental changes on the Earth.  Resources will be available in September.  For more information, contact Catherine Fitzsimons at the University of Leicester:
