Climate Variability Record

This video gives an overview of global climate change, historical and annual carbon emissions, and biggest and smallest contributors to the emissions. This video is part of a series about climate change supported by Breakthrough
A visualization to observe and analyze the change in temperature as measured in each country over the past 100+ years. Each stripe represents the temperature in that country averaged over a year.  For virtually every
Series of two E-Learning Courses on Introduction to Climate Change and Climate Science Following are two online courses in Climate Change and Climate Science by the National Resource Centre (NRC) on Climate Change at the
CAIT Climate Data Explorer by World Resources Institute (WRI) showcases the world’s top greenhouse gas-emitting countries with the latest global data available till the year 2013. This interactive chart can be used to explore it by
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about the isotopes of hydrogen and oxygen, analyze the isotopic composition of ice, and understand how isotopic compositions can be used to recreate past temperatures and climate. Students will plot
A classroom/laboratory activity to model temperature data by using trigonometric functions. Students will model given temperature data (for Wellington, New Zealand) by using sine and cosine functions. They will compare models and discuss their observations.
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn and apply polynomial differentiation and to solve tangent line problems for global average CO2 data. Students will observe the trend in increasing atmospheric CO2 levels, infer when atmospheric CO2 levels
A hands-on e-learning course to create and tell engaging stories based on climate change data by using different approaches. Students will learn about methods for data analysis and different approaches for data-driven visual storytelling such
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about statistical methods to analyze average annual temperatures of major cities in the world (New York and Sydney) and to determine trends in the data. Students will create histograms to
A model/simulator to learn about changes in Earth’s climate caused by variations in the solar energy received by the planet over geological time scales and to understand the role of the orbital parameters (obliquity, precession,
A classroom/laboratory activity to calculate the mean daily temperature using hourly temperature data and to compare different statistical techniques for determining this value. Students will use a given data set to calculate the mean daily
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about regression analysis of data by using global temperature data over a period of 150 years. Students will plot global mean temperatures, perform regression analysis, and determine global mean temperature
