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 reading that introduces a single-layer atmosphere model, which is based on the emissivity of thermal radiation, to explain atmospheric warming.  Students will learn about the absorptivity and emissivity of grey bodies, the equation for
