As a teacher of undergraduate Statistics you can use this set of computer-based tools when teaching topics such as Confidence Interval, student’s t-distribution and Uncertainty in the given data-set. For a teacher of undergraduate Geography or Earth Sciences, this activity will help students develop a better understanding of the disasters, how climate change may be impacting hurricanes, as well as calculating trends and understanding uncertainty.
As a teacher of undergraduate Statistics you can use this set of computer-based tools when teaching topics such as finding Correlation between different variables in the data-set. As a teacher of undergraduate Geography or Earth Sciences, you can make use of this teaching toolkit to teach topics such as Relationships between SOI, precipitation, river discharge, and agricultural yields; The effect of ENSO on the tropical atmosphere.
This computer-based classroom/laboratory activity allows a student to explore trends in hurricane intensity, the possible impact of climate change on hurricanes, and understanding uncertainty in trends.
Project future carbon emission, temperature and sea level based on projected population, economic growth and energy consumption.
This tool can be used as an aid to teach topics such as Energy, Economics and Climate Change.
Simulate a hurricane and observe the change in its intensity as a result of changes in latitude, sea surface temperature and other parameters.
This simulator can be used as an aid to teach topics such as Disasters, Hazards, Hurricanes, Storms, Heat, Energy, Pressure, Oceanography, Convection, Entropy, Coriolis Force and Thermodynamics. It can also be used to teach Data Analysis for statistics students.
Contemporary Climate Oscillations: ENSO and a case study of the Huanghe River
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.
The activity can be used as an aid to teach topics such as El Niño Southern Oscillation; River Hydrology; River Sedimentation; River Discharge; Relationship between ENSO, Precipitation and River Discharge; River Delta Geo-morphology; and Impact of Climate Change and Anthropogenic Activities on Rivers in Earth and Environmental Science. It can also be a case study for the topic of Data Analysis in Statistics.
