A model/simulator to learn about vertical energy (heat) transfer in the Earth’s system and planetary energy balance.
This model/simulator shows the relationship between changes in Earth’s climate due to variations in the solar energy received by the planet over geological time scales. It shows that over long timescales ice age cycles (Milankovitch cycles) have occurred on earth due to changes in the orbital parameters (obliquity, precession, and eccentricity).
|A model/simulator to explore the Gaia hypothesis and the concepts of albedo and hysteresis through the example of daisies (living organisms) and their interaction with temperature (climatic factor).|
A model/simulator to understand the relationships between climate change, economics, and social factors.
A model/simulator to understand the prediction of peak global oil production, and to learn about oil as an energy source, its peak and reserves, and the economics and geopolitics of oil.
A model/simulator to learn about and use the Kaya Identity to predict future carbon emissions.
A model/simulator to learn about the geologic carbon cycle and its role in stabilizing the Earth’s climate.
A visualization/model/game to build your own version of planet Earth and learn about the Earth’s climate system and the factors that influence it by configuring various parameters and observing their effect on climate.
A model/simulator to understand the effect of greenhouse gases on outgoing energy flux, and to compare the absorption of infrared radiation by various greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and water vapor.
This calculator provides current and forecasted soil water deficit at a specific location. It uses historical climate data, forecasted rainfall and evapotranspiration data, and location-specific data to for this prediction.
