Brock Spencer, ChemLinks Coalition, Beloit College


This 3-4 week science module is designed for introductory college courses and uses data to tackle questions related to global warming. The module includes short and long term temperature trend data, along with IR spectra, concentration trend data for greenhouse gases, and information about the Kyoto Protocol. This project is tied to several NSF systemic reform initiatives in Chemistry and the ChemConnections series published by Wiley and Sons.
