ICCARS: Investigating Climate Change and Remote Sensing (ICCARS)

ICCARS is funded by a two-year (2010-2012, $700,000) NASA Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) grant awarded to Wayne RESA and Eastern Michigan University. The outcome of this two-year grant is for students and teachers to have a working understanding of the science behind global climate change and its relationship to human activity, in particular its relationship to land-use and land-cover changes on multiple scales, through use of NASA data products and models.

 

 

The ICCARS eLearning Collaboratory
The ICCARS eLearning Collaboratory is an eLearning portal which includes many resources dealing with climate change and remote sensing. This includes images, videos, lesson plans, documents, tutorials, and more. The collaboratory features web-based geographic information system, a student observation database, and groupware for social networking to build the ICCARS supporting community. Facebook, Twitter, Picasa, Blogger and RSS feeds are used to build an integrated collaborative learning space where students and teachers share ideas, data, information and findings. While portions of the eCollaboratory are in development as we build the project, many resources are available now.
