Comparing Carbon Calculators
Mark McCaffrey, National Center for Science Education
Carbon calculators, no matter how well intended as tools to help measure energy footprints, tend to be black boxes and can produce wildly different results, depending on the calculations used to weigh various ...
Glenn Richard, SUNY at Stony Brook
An investigation of changes in polar regions using Google Earth.
Sediments and the Global Carbon Cycle
Lonnie Leithold, North Carolina State University at Raleigh
This is a series of exercises designed to introduce undergraduate students to the role of sediments and sedimentary rocks in the global carbon cycle and the use of stable carbon isotopes to reconstruct ancient ...
Quantifying Greenhouse Gas Emissions at the County Level: A Collaborative Term Project to Enhance Understanding of Climate Modeling and Quantitative Reasoning
Robert Turner, University of Washington-Bothell Campus
Erin Pettit, University of Alaska Fairbanks
This activity is intended to get students engaged and thinking about the role that snow plays in our climate system. It is a hands-on inquiry-based activity that students with no background knowledge can do. The ...
Modeling the Complexities of the Carbon Cycle Utilizing Excel
Andrea Bixler, Clarke University; Lindsay Dubbs, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Dave Finster, Wittenberg University; Harold Geller, George Mason University; Jeanne Troy, National Academy of Sciences
This activity is part of the community collection of teaching materials on climate and energy topics. These materials were submitted by faculty as part of the CLEAN Climate Workshop, held in May, 2012 and are not ...
Weathering of Igneous, Metamorphic, and Sedimentary Rocks in a Semi-Arid Climate - An Engineering Application of Petrology
Wendy Harrison, National Science Foundation; Ric Wendlandt, Colorado School of Mines
Students examine soils developed on igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks near Denver, Colorado. The 2-week exercise includes sample collection, description, and preparation, determining clay mineralogy by ...
Demonstrating Climate Change and the Water Cycle to Fifth Grade Students
Demonstration of the greenhouse effect and its role in climate change, discussion of the phases of water and the water cycle, and a hands-on experiment to investigate the role of temperature in phase changes of ...
Global Warming in the Field
Dawn Cardace, University of Rhode Island
This field trip involves group problem solving using aspects of glacial geology, paleoclimatology, and sea-level change predictions. The strengths are in getting students in the field in coastal RI: peaty/swampy ...
