A video to understand ocean acidification and its impacts. Students will learn about how carbon dioxide (CO2) affects the pH of the ocean, and how increasing ocean acidity may adversely affect marine life and the
A game to explore scenarios of future energy demand, allocate different energy sources to meet projected demands, and observe the consequences on carbon emission levels and global temperature. Students will allocate a given budget to
Climate Science Education Series Developed by Science Media Center, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Pune, India Indian Monsoon Video lecture by Raghu Murtugudde Professor, University of Maryland, USA (Map Credit: Maps of Idnia)
Teaching modules to learn about climate change science and climate change literature by analyzing and interpreting data and by performing rhetorical analyses of climate change literature. “The module is designed to be completed in introductory
A reading that explains how the analyses of hydrogen and oxygen isotopes from ice cores determine past temperatures on Earth. Students will learn how isotopic ratios of hydrogen and oxygen in water molecules from the
A classroom/laboratory activity that demonstrates the thermal properties of carbon dioxide (CO2), a greenhouse gas, that may contribute to global warming. Students will investigate the thermal properties of carbon dioxide by comparing the effect of
A simple simulator that allows users to change a range of variables such as the color of light, brightness of light, and carbon dioxide concentration, and then note their impact on the photosynthetic efficiency of
An e-learning course to create climate models in Python through hands-on programming exercises. Students will use Python to model energy balance; ice-albedo feedback; ice sheet dynamics; and pressure, rotation, and fluid flow. Use this tool
A video to learn about the link between volcanic forcing of global climate and the English food crisis of 1258. Students will learn and discuss topics in medieval economic history: the mega-eruption of the Samalas
A classroom/laboratory activity to explore the possible role of climate-related environmental factors in the timing of leaf-out in plants (specifically, red maple leaf-out in New England).  In this activity, students will create graphs by using
