Motivation
The Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA) is the first-ever true-color high-resolution satellite view of the Antarctic continent enabling everyone to see Antarctica as it appears in real life. This web site is designed as part of the International Polar Year to familiarize people with Antarctica, to explore the richness of its features, to learn about why Antarctica matters to us all, and to explain and demonstrate how scientists use satellite imagery to study the continent. This site is a two-year project. We plan to periodically add content. Your feedback is sought to help us in improving the site.
Objectives
  • you had became the scientists who studied the features on Antarctica, as never seen before;
  • using a major scientific tool: curiosity, you had developed a research question and argue the value of studying a feature based on this new view of Antarctica;
  • helping us to acquaint with their scientific interests and to give us some insight into what it takes to be a scientist.
  • Participants:
    This project involved students from 11th D class from “Tudor Vianu” National High School of Computer Science.
