A reading that introduces the topic of phenology, its significance, and the link between plant phenology and climate.
A video micro-lecture that discusses Earth’s energy balance and the greenhouse effect of the atmosphere.
A reading that introduces a single-layer atmosphere model, which is based on the emissivity of thermal radiation, to explain atmospheric warming.
A reading that discusses the blackbody emission properties of the Sun and planets, describes the calculation of planetary temperatures by using the Stefan-Boltzmann Law, and explains the effect of atmospheres on planetary temperatures.
A reading that discusses the use of the law of conservation of angular momentum to explain the extent of Hadley cells.
A hands-on classroom/laboratory activity to learn about the Coriolis Effect.
A visualization and associated activity to explain how Planck’s Law can be used to plot blackbody curves of objects with different temperatures, the relationship between temperature and peak wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum, and the greenhouse effect of Earth’s atmosphere.
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.
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 visualize the shrinking and growing of a glacier as a result of changes in snowfall and temperature.
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 the Hadley Cell and a simple model for the Hadley Circulation, using the law of conservation of angular momentum.
