    Using ADI to Quantify a Color Change In Crayfish
    (2011-01-01) Welborn, Jennifer
    Do Crayfish Change Color If Their Environment Changes? A Guided Inquiry Lab for 7th grade Life Science Background: There is anecdotal evidence from bass fisherman that crayfish are able to change color depending on their surroundings. A (cursory) literature review of this phenomenon showed that no formal research has been done in this area. Students had an additional informal lesson about research funding (or lack thereof) because of this finding. Students designed and conducted a controlled experiment to see the effect of changing environment color on crayfish color. ADI was used to quantify a color change.

    Measuring Albedo with ADI - an Intensity Application
    (2011-01-01) Sternheim, Morton
    Why are Polar Regions more affected by global warming than other parts of the globe? One reason (there are others) is that as sea ice melts and more open water appears, more energy is absorbed, and warming accelerates. This is a form of positive feedback and it makes the polar climate change faster than the climate in temperate areas. Increasing vegetation on land also has a similar positive feedback effect. This effect is a change in the albedo – the fraction of the incident sunlight that is reflected back to space.
