Climate Variability in the Equatorial Pacific part of CLEAN Collection
In this activity, students work with climate data from the tropical Pacific Ocean to understand how sea-surface temperature and atmospheric pressure affect precipitation in the tropical Pacific in a ...
Climate Variability in the North Atlantic part of CLEAN Collection
In this activity, students examine climate variability in the North Atlantic associated with the North Atlantic Oscillation (NOA) in a case study format.
Predicting Patterns: What Does La Niña Look Like? part of CLEAN Collection
This is an activity designed to allow students who have been exposed to the El Niño-Southern Oscillation to analyze the La Niña mechanism and predict its outcomes in a case study format.
Exploring Patterns: ENSO on the Global Stage part of CLEAN Collection
In this activity, students analyze data maps of sea surface temperature anomalies for a 14-year interval and create an ENSO time line in a case study format. Based on their findings, students ...
The Buffer Zone: Acid-base Chemistry in the World part of CLEAN Collection
In this activity, students conduct a short hands-on demonstration that simulates ocean acidification resulting from excess atmospheric carbon dioxide and discuss potential implications of increases ...
The Earth's Heat Budget part of CLEAN Collection
Hands-on laboratory activity that allows students to investigate the effects of distance and angle on the input of solar radiation at Earth's surface, the role played by albedo, the heat ...
Tropical Atlantic Aerosols part of CLEAN Collection
Students use real satellite data to determine 1) where the greatest concentrations of aerosols are located during the course of a year in the tropical Atlantic region and 2) their source of origin. ...
Effects of Solar Radiation on Land and Sea part of CLEAN Collection
This brief, hands-on activity illustrates the different heating capacities of soil and water in order to understand why places near the sea have a more moderate climate than those inland.
Ocean Currents and Sea Surface Temperature part of CLEAN Collection
In this classroom activity, students access sea surface temperature and wind speed data from a NASA site, plot and compare data, draw conclusions about surface current and sea surface temperature, ...
Detecting El Niño in Sea Surface Temperature Data part of CLEAN Collection
This multi-part activity introduces users to normal seasonal sea surface temperature (SST) variation as well as extreme variation, as in the case of El Niño and La Niña events, in the equatorial ...
