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.
An interactive visualization to explore the effects of melting ice sheets and the resulting sea level rise on coastal areas.
|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 learn about vertical energy (heat) transfer in the Earth’s system and planetary energy balance.
A model/simulator to learn about changes in Earth’s climate caused by variations in the solar energy received by the planet over geological time scales and to understand the role of the orbital parameters (obliquity, precession, and eccentricity) in causing ice age cycles (Milankovitch cycles) on Earth.
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.
