Climate and the Hydrosphere

The Office for Climate Education (OCE) presents a Teachers Guidebook that aims to support teachers in carrying out various activities on climate change and the ocean and cryosphere in their classrooms, and targets students of
A visualization that allows students to explore changes in the pH levels of oceans for different levels of atmospheric CO2. It includes visualizations of CO2 concentrations corresponding to various emission scenarios of the Intergovernmental Panel
A video micro-lecture that explains carbonate buffering in the ocean. It includes discussions on the changes in the chemical composition of the ocean caused by a higher concentration of dissolved CO2, ocean acidification and the
A set of hands-on laboratory activities that uses the pH scale to understand the changes in ocean chemistry due to increased carbon dioxide emissions. This module shows that increased ocean acidification has adverse effects on
A teaching module to introduce the impact of climate change on water systems and the resulting effects on human society. Students will learn about the link between climate change and water, and the factors that
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about the pH of ocean water, explore the potential effects of climate change on ocean acidification, and understand the possible impacts of ocean acidification on marine organisms such as oysters. Students will explore
A visualization to learn about the pH scale, the pH of different liquids, ocean acidification, and the possible impacts of ocean acidification on marine life. Students will identify the pH of different liquids and observe
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about the rate of sea-level rise and the response of shorelines to sea-level change. Students will examine and analyze sea-level change data and shoreline response for the coast of California
An interactive visualization to observe and understand the possible effects of sea-level rise and different storm scenarios on the coast of California. Students will configure parameters such as the amount of sea-level rise and the
An interactive visualization to observe the effects of a global temperature increase of 4 °C on human health, agriculture, forests, oceans and marine ecosystems, permafrost, water availability, and extreme climate events. Students will observe and
