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.
A teaching module that demonstrates the use of linear and quadratic regression to analyze Arctic sea ice extent data and the use of graphs, sample correlations, and multiple regression to analyze atmospheric CO2 level data, solar irradiance data, and average global temperature data.
A video and visualization to learn about glacier modeling and the prediction of the future of glaciers by using mathematical models.
A classroom/laboratory activity that introduces the relationship between climate and the cryosphere, explains how sea-level rise can be predicted (based on average global temperature change), and triggers a discussion on the potential impacts of sea-level rise.
An interactive visualization to observe and understand the possible effects of sea-level rise and different storm scenarios on the coast of California.
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about glacial retreat and to predict the complete melting of a glacier (specifically, for an example in Glacier National Park).
An interactive visualization to observe the effects of a global temperature increase of 4 °C on human health, agriculture, forests, oceans and marine ecosystems, permafrost, water availability, and extreme climate events.
An e-learning course to understand how cities are impacted by and influence climate change.
An interactive visualization to explore the effects of melting ice sheets and the resulting sea level rise on coastal areas.
A reading that introduces the topic of glaciers and their formation.
A reading to learn about the effects of climate change on food security and to explore climate change adaptation measures to ensure food security.
A reading to learn about recent changes in hurricane activity, specifically in the Atlantic.
A reading to learn about what affect hurricane activity and the measures that can help in building resilience to the impacts of hurricanes.
A classroom/laboratory activity to explore the possible role of climate-related environmental factors in the timing of leaf-out in plants (specifically, red maple leaf-out in New England).
A reading that introduces the topic of phenology, its significance, and the link between plant phenology and climate.
