A reading that explains how the analyses of hydrogen and oxygen isotopes from ice cores determine past temperatures on Earth.
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.
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 marine organisms.
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.
A visualization to observe, understand, explore, and analyze the molecular structure of carbon compounds (CO2, CH4), the effect of electromagnetic radiation on these molecules, and the role of greenhouse gases in climate change.
A classroom/laboratory activity or teaching module to perform cost-benefit analysis for carbon emissions abatement, considered to be an action that will mitigate climate change.
A teaching module to introduce the impact of climate change on water systems and the resulting effects on human society.
A classroom/laboratory activity to understand tragedy of the commons through case studies and discuss global warming as a tragedy of the commons.
A teaching module to learn about climate refugees, specific examples of climate change-related migration, challenges in resettling climate refugees, and actions to help people displaced by climate change.
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.
A model/simulator to understand the relationships between climate change, economics, and social factors.
A set of reading resources to learn and understand the economics of climate change.
A game to explore scenarios of future energy demand, allocate different energy sources to meet projected demands, and observe the consequences on carbon emission levels and global temperature.
A reading to learn about the economic analysis of climate change, and various economic policies for climate change adaptation and mitigation.
The requirements on financial instruments to support climate action are multiple. This self-paced E-learning Course introduces various topics in Climate Finance for Economics students and practitioners.
