“NASA’s Earth Now is an application that visualizes recent global climate data from Earth Science satellites, including surface air temperature, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone, and water vapor as well as gravity and sea level variations. Data sets are visually described using “false color” maps.” ; as quoted by the developer organization Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA .
A hands-on e-learning course to create and tell engaging stories based on climate change data by using different approaches.
Explore this Application to learn more about the Climate Literacy Project and its Outputs and make use of the e-Learning Material available to enrich understanding about Climate Change. This material also includes an exciting Online Game and Quizzes.
Polar Explorer is an education app. It educates the user about past, present and future sea level with the help of maps and images created with real data. The app includes text, audio and questionnaire which is helpful to study approximately hundred topics.
This app provides spatial information related to the Ministry of service centers and all UAE, as well as environmental, biological, protected areas, and agricultural statistics information.
The Kolkata Climate Change Cell is a web-enabled and help-desk based resource center which brings together citizens from different professions. The citizens can take info about climate-friendly initiatives in Kolkata city.
This app allows the user to upload a sighting from her location to the app data. This sighting then compared with NASA’s satellite data. It helps everybody to identify ground level changes that correlate with bigger picture seen from space.
A series of micro-lectures (videos) for an overview of the relationships between the Earth's climate, the biosphere, and the lithosphere.
This is an dynamic animation video showing total emissions and the rate of emissions of New York City. The video makes carbon missions feel more real and engaging.
This video is an introductory lecture of the online E-course by Prof David Archer, a renowned Climate Scientist. Prof Archer introduces the concept of Green House effect and other anthropological activities through this video.
This video introduces the acceleration in sea level rise and risks associated with it. It is a part of Changing Planet series by National Science Foundation, NBC Learn.
This video gives an overview of Climate and Health, and especially about the vector-borne diseases.
This introductory e-course produced by UN CC Learn contains six modules: Climate Change Science, International Legal and Policy Framework for Climate Change, Climate Change Adaptation, Climate Change Mitigation, Climate Change Finance, Planning for Climate Change.
A classroom/laboratory activity to examine and analyze squirrel species distribution and habitat data (from the USA) over time, and to interpret the possible relationship between climate change and changes in biodiversity.
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about the isotopes of hydrogen and oxygen, analyze the isotopic composition of ice, and understand how isotopic compositions can be used to recreate past temperatures and climate.
Students will plot graphs to analyze data from the Vostok ice core in Antarctica, learn about the ice age and the gas age, calculate past temperatures using hydrogen isotope data, and discuss the possible impacts of changes in carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) concentrations on climate.
Use this tool to help your students find answers to:
- How can you use hydrogen isotope data in an ice core to determine temperature?
- How can the isotopic composition of air bubbles in ice cores be used to recreate past climate?
