Activity

Global Climate Change part of Cutting Edge:Climate Change:Activities
Students examine pre-historical to present atmospheric CO2 levels from published sources and determine pre-industrial, present, and possibly future levels. Then they use an Energy Balance Model (EBM) to study latitudinal changes in temperature as CO2 changes. They should discover that polar areas are most influenced, but also that tropical temperatures approach threshold levels when future CO2 values are used. They then write a report about their findings. I no longer use this model or activity, but it is one that I would like to revive. One of the major strengths of this activity is that students work with real data and models.
