Lab 7: Future of the Cryosphere
The lab activity described here was developed by Erin Bardar of TERC for the EarthLabs project. Use the button at the right to navigate to the student activity pages for this lab. To open the student pages in a ...

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 ...

Northwest Passage
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 ...

Exploring Snow
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 ...

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 ...

Tropical Cyclones, Sea Surface Temperature, and Beyond
Danielle Schmitt, Princeton University
The activity will use historical data of sea surface temperature and tropical cyclone origin and/or tracks to identify trends. Students use Arc GIS to explore projected SST changes and predict areas where tropical ...

Calculating Rates of Change
Catherine OReilly, Illinois State University
This in class activity allows students to calculate rates of change from graphs of glacial-interglacial temperatures and CO2 and modern temperatures and CO2.
