This course uses case studies from various African cities to illustrate urban resilience and adaptation in the context of climate change.
This interactive map helps students to visualize the impacts of a global temperature rise on human health, agriculture, forests, oceans and marine ecosystems, permafrost, water availability, extreme climate events, sea-level rise, etc.
This interactive tool helps students to visualize the effect of sea level rise and various storm scenarios on the coast of California.
This e-course describes how cities are impacted by and influence climate change. It also explains climate change adaptation and mitigation in urban planning.
This activity allows a student to learn about the rate of sea-level rise and its causes. It also describes how shorelines respond to sea-level change and how coastal vulnerability indices are calculated.
This interactive tool provides information about glaciers worldwide; allows searches based on name, country, and other filters; and provides information on events such as floods and avalanches. A card game allows students to test their glacier knowledge.
This interactive tool allows students to observe the effect of changes in snowfall and temperature on the shrinking and growing of a glacier. Questions and assignments are available in the “For Teachers” section at https://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/legacy/glaciers.
