This interactive visualization allows learners to build their own Earth, and to configure various parameters and factors affecting the climate. The factors include the tilt of the Earth’s axis, the eccentricity of the Earth’s orbit, the solar constant, the distribution of the continents and oceans, and the carbon dioxide concentration of the atmosphere.
This tool helps students understand the different factors that affect the climate of various planets such as Mars, Venus, and Earth.
|This storymap (from ESRI) helps students to learn about several communities across the world that are facing severe threats due to climate change through the use of mapmaking and visualization techniques. An associated worksheet (from the Human Imprint) helps students learn more about the issue through a series of suggested questions.|
This interactive visualization helps students to learn about the pH scale, acids and bases, ocean acidification, and the potential impact of rising atmospheric CO2 levels on marine animals.
This tool helps students to visualize the structure of the molecules of atmospheric gases and to understand the effect of electromagnetic radiation on these molecules. The activity will also introduce the topic of greenhouse gases and their role in climate.
The interactive simulations in this tool help students understand blackbody radiation and the effect of albedo on the temperature of a planet.
This interactive visualization helps students to learn about the IR spectra of different greenhouse gases, observe the amount of IR radiation absorbed by greenhouse gases, and to understand the resulting influence on the Earth’s climate.
This interactive map helps students to visualize the impacts of a global temperature rise on human health, agriculture, forests, oceans and marine ecosystems, permafrost, water availability, extreme climate events, sea-level rise, etc.
This interactive tool helps students to visualize the effect of sea level rise and various storm scenarios on the coast of California.
Texas was hit by Harvey hurricane in September 2017. The visualisation shows Harvey’s impact on Texas towns.
