What is the Cryospheric Connection?

Cryospheric Connection to Understanding Climate Change uses the topic of permafrost, part of the cryosphere, as a springboard to help secondary teachers understand and use NASA resources to study climate.

Cryospheric Connection curriculum resources were developed in collaboration with permafrost researchers, Alaska Native Elders, teachers and students.

Interactive multimedia activities, animations and videos, and online lessons blend indigenous ecological knowledge and science to deliver core climate knowledge. Multimedia and lessons are standard-aligned, place-based and culturally relevant.
