Description:

Students will follow the impacts of the Mount St. Helens eruption and the resulting changes to the surrounding landscape via the ChangeMatters Web site - http://www.esri.com/landsat-imagery/index.html by exposing them to a pre-packaged tour of the analysis that is possible through the use of Landsat (Land Satellite) imagery. This activity can be used as an introductory lesson about the Mount St. Helens volcanic eruption and as an introduction to remote sensing and image analysis.
