本课程的内容可以向国际社会彰显中国应对气候变化的立场、政策和行动及其成效。This course hosted at EdX learning platform helps to understand China’s perspectives, policies, actions and effects on global climate changes to the international community.
The tool allows a student to explore how isotopes can be used as indicators of paleoclimate and reconstruct the paleoclimate using data from the Vostok ice core.
This undergraduate level course helps students to learn about climate change and its impacts. It also provides information on climate change adaptation and mitigation.
This model allows students to learn about the geologic carbon cycle by changing the CO2 degassing rate and by altering the weathering rate.
In this activity, students can calculate the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) of El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) based on the mean sea level pressure data spanning 80 years. The calculated SOI can be compared with a case study of the Huanghe River.
This interactive visualization allows learners to build their own Earth, and to configure various parameters and factors affecting the climate. The factors include the tilt of the Earth’s axis, the eccentricity of the Earth’s orbit, the solar constant, the distribution of the continents and oceans, and the carbon dioxide concentration of the atmosphere.
This model demonstrates the effect of greenhouse gases on outgoing energy flux and compares various greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, and water vapor with respect to the absorption of infrared radiation.
This Interactive Visualization helps students understand the different factors that affect the climate of various planets such as Mars, Venus, and Earth.
This activity allows students to learn and understand the urban heat island effect by measuring temperatures in an area, collating data and analyzing the data. Students use available temperature data for a specific location (Los Angeles) to observe and analyze the occurrence of heat waves.
Texas was hit by Harvey hurricane in September 2017. The visualisation shows Harvey’s impact on Texas towns.

The game allows a student to explore scenarios of future energy demand, to allocate energy sources to meet projected demands and to observe the consequences on temperature and carbon emission levels.
This game can be used as an aid to teach topics such as Socio-economic Studies, and Energy, Economics and Climate Change.
