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.
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about the rate of sea-level rise and the response of shorelines to sea-level change.
An interactive visualization to observe and understand the possible effects of sea-level rise and different storm scenarios on the coast of California.
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 interactive visualization to explore the effects of melting ice sheets and the resulting sea level rise on coastal areas.
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 learn about linear slope, trends, confidence intervals, and Student’s t-distribution by calculating trends and uncertainties using hurricane data records over 40 years.
A teaching module to introduce the impact of climate change on water systems and the resulting effects on human society.
