Toolkit: Teaching Carbon Cycle and Environmental Chemistry through Climate-related Examples


As a teacher of high school or undergraduate Chemistry, you can use this set of computer-based tools when teaching topics in environmental chemistry such as the carbon cycle or biogeochemical cycles.

Paleoclimate, Climate Records: Oxygen Isotopes

Tool Name: O18_16 (Oxygène)

Language: French

The tool allows a student to learn about the isotopes of oxygen (O18 and O16); to understand the relative distribution of these isotopes in the atmosphere, ocean and cryosphere; and to explore how these isotopes can be used as indicators of paleoclimate.
