This interactive simulation helps students to understand topics such as Planck’s Law; Wien’s Law; Blackbody Radiation; Stefan Boltzmann’s Law; the Relationship between Temperature and Peak Wavelength of the Electromagnetic Spectrum; Planetary Temperatures as a Function of Solar Energy Received; and Greenhouse Effect of Earth’s Atmosphere.
Visualize the effect of sea level rise on the coast of California. This tool can be used as an aid to teach topics such as Disasters, Floods, Sea Level Rise, Flood Potential, and Natural Hazards and Disasters.
Project future carbon emission, temperature and sea level based on projected population, economic growth and energy consumption.
This tool can be used as an aid to teach topics such as Energy, Economics and Climate Change.
Simulate a hurricane and observe the change in its intensity as a result of changes in latitude, sea surface temperature and other parameters.
This simulator can be used as an aid to teach topics such as Disasters, Hazards, Hurricanes, Storms, Heat, Energy, Pressure, Oceanography, Convection, Entropy, Coriolis Force and Thermodynamics. It can also be used to teach Data Analysis for statistics students.
A glacier is a persistent body of dense ice that is constantly moving under its own weight; it forms where the accumulation of snow exceeds its ablation (melting and sublimation) over many years, often centuries.
This tool can be used as a visualization aid to teach topics such as Glaciers; Snowfall;
Impact of Temperature and Precipitation on Glacial Mass; Equilibrium Line; Accumulation; Ablation; Glacial Budget; Glacier Length; Glacial Advance; Glacial Retreat; Climatic Conditions for Glacial Advance, Glacial Retreat and Glacial Equilibrium.
Translations are available in different languages.
This model, created in Insight Maker, allows a student to determine the amount of carbon in various reservoirs of our planet.
Understand how changes in Earth’s orbital parameters (Milankovitch cycles) influence the long-term climate of planet Earth.
Explore the effects of greenhouse gases on climate (effect of greenhouse gases on temperature, effect of clouds on temperature, interaction of photons with atmospheric gases, etc.).
