China’s Perspective on Climate Change|应对气候变化的中国视角

本课程的内容可以向国际社会彰显中国应对气候变化的立场、政策和行动及其成效。This course hosted at EdX learning platform helps to understand China’s perspectives, policies, actions and effects on global climate changes to the international community.

Contemporary Climate Oscillations: ENSO and a case study of the Huanghe River

In this activity, students can calculate the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) of El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) based on the mean sea level pressure data spanning 80 years. The calculated SOI can be compared with a case study of the Huanghe River.

US and China CO2 Emisisons

In this activity, students are provided with CO2 emissions, population, and per capita emissions data for the US and China from 1980 to 2014. This dataset and associated exercise can be used to teach introductory calculus and topics in integration such as Reimann Sums and area under curves to calculate total emissions and per capita emissions and their average rate of change for each country.

Lesson Plan: Teaching Correlation Statistics with the help of ENSO and Temperature-related Data

As a teacher of undergraduate Statistics you can use this set of computer-based tools when teaching topics such as finding the correlation between different variables in a data set. As a teacher of undergraduate Geography or Earth Sciences, you can use this teaching toolkit to teach topics such as relationships between SOI, precipitation, agricultural yields; and the effect of ENSO on the tropical atmosphere.
