Using satellite imagery, this atlas provides not only standard information on landscape but also on a vast array of normally invisible environmental elements, such as the flow of ocean currents and the effect of precipitation and cloud cover on atmospheric temperature. The atlas explains the importance of sustainable development, bridging the gap between the classroom, space technology and earth observation. Realistic views of the Earth’s surface, combined with thematic maps demonstrate the dynamic processes of our globe. The atlas is accompanied by a Teachers’ Handbook.
Nearly 300 full color pages of maps and images from space including topography, plate tectonics, precipitation, temperature, climate zones, land cover, population, atmosphere and natural hazards in Europe.
