Earth Sciences

Integrate climate science in your teaching and use these educational resources to teach topics such as:

Planet Earth and it’s Climate, Earth’s Climate System, Past Episodes of Climate Change, Historical Climate Change, Recent Climate Change, Future projections, The Roles of the Atmosphere, Cryosphere, Hydrosphere, Lithosphere, Biosphere, Anthroposphere, and their interactions in determining the climate of planet Earth, Water Resources and Climate Change, Climate Change and Food, Adaptation and Mitigation, Biogeochemical Cycles, The Geologic Carbon Cycle, The Silicate Thermostat, Milankovitch Cycles, Isotopes and Climate Reconstruction, The Greenhouse Effect, El Nino Southern Oscillation, Thermohaline Circulation, Coriolis Force, Hadley Circulation and more.

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
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
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
A reading that explains the phase diagrams of water on Earth, Mars, and Venus and discusses the water vapor feedback mechanism in the atmospheres of these planets that influences the greenhouse effect. Students will be
A video micro-lecture that describes the phase diagrams of water on Earth, Mars, and Venus. It also describes the water vapor feedback mechanism in the atmospheres of these planets that influences the greenhouse effect. Students
A video that introduces permafrost and its distribution on Earth. The video also describes the changing nature of permafrost across several regions due to higher surface temperatures and the possible impact of permafrost thawing on
A set of hands-on classroom and computer-based activities for students to learn about permafrost and to explore various web-based scientific data portals to investigate permafrost distribution, characteristics of permafrost, and the effects of thawing permafrost
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 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 reading that explains Earth’s equable climate in the past using the theories, Hadley Cells, Convective Cloud Feedback, Polar Stratospheric Clouds, and Tropical Cyclones. Students will learn about Earth’s equable climate. They can use this
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
An e-learning course to learn the basics of climate change science, climate change policies, climate change adaptation and mitigation, climate change finance, and climate change action. The course contains the following modules: Climate Change Science
