This self-paced, interactive tutorial explores the use of remote-sensing data to monitor Great Lakes weather and climate. Interactive tools are provided to allow the learner to compare the surface area of the different Great Lakes. Seasonal climate extremes observed in the Great Lakes region is explained by the geographical characteristics of its mid-latitudinal location, and are documented in a series of seasonal images produced by satellite sensors. This resource is part of the tutorial series, Satellite Observations in Science Education, and is the first of three modules in the tutorial, Great Lakes Weather and Climate.
