A reading that discusses how chemical bonds in molecules respond to incident IR light and absorb IR energy during certain modes of vibration. The reading includes discussions on the vibrational modes of water vapor and
A set of classroom/laboratory activities to reconstruct Earth’s past climate using isotopic composition data from ice cores and to highlight the influence of orbital forcing and atmospheric carbon dioxide feedback on Earth’s climate. Students will reconstruct
As a high school Chemistry teacher, you can use this set of computer-based tools to help you in teaching the chemistry of carbon and its compounds, the interaction of greenhouse gas molecules with electromagnetic radiation, and environmental chemistry. This lesson
A video that presents a realistic and engaging visualization of the total carbon emissions and rate of carbon emissions in New York City. Students will learn about the carbon footprint of New York City, based
An e-learning course to learn about the Earth’s climate system, climate change in the past and present, the impact of climate change, and measures for adaptation and mitigation. Students will understand the Earth’s climate system,
An e-learning course to learn about the science of climate change, simple climate models, natural factors and human activities that influence climate, and options to mitigate climate change. Students will perform exercises and activities to
A model/simulator to understand the effect of greenhouse gases on outgoing energy flux, and to compare the absorption of infrared radiation by various greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and water vapor.
A video lecture by Raghu Murtugudde, University of Maryland for TROP ICSU titled ‘ The Earth System and Climate’ that provides an overview of the Earth’s system and its climate. This video discusses different aspects
