Description:

This self-paced, interactive tutorial teaches how to estimate the travel time, acceleration, and trajectory of iceberg movement from satellite images. Factors that impact the complex motion of icebergs, such as weather, ice processes and oceanographic influences are also explored. This resource is part of the tutorial series, Satellite Observations in Science Education, and is the third of three modules in the tutorial, Hunting Icebergs. (Note: requires Java plug-in)
