Using Systems Thinking to Understand the Drivers of Climate Change
This short video explains how the behavior of a stock (i.e., anything that accumulates or declines) is determined by its inflows and outflows, and how 'stock-flow' behavior underpins many of the drivers of climate change, such as the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, or the imbalance of Earth's energy budget. Similarly, understanding stock-flow behavior is critical to our own decisions about how we might address climate change (e.g., how much should emissions be reduced? how will the existing stock of our energy infrastructure influence future emissions? how might the number of people who advocate for climate action change over time?)

High level architecture of earth system models

This blog entry, by professor Steve Easterbrook, provides a visual representation of climate models. Through the use of schematic diagrams, Steve attempts to aid in the understanding of climate ...

Glac Modeled Glacier Change Animation

Animation of Modeled Climate-Induced Glacier Change in Glacier National Park, 1850- 2100. The simulation reflects the predicted exponential rise in atmospheric CO2 concentrations, a 2xCO2 ...

Properties of the Atmosphere

This QuickTime animation, with accompanying audio, shows how temperature, pressure, and density change with increasing altitude. Whereas pressure decreases fairly uniformly with height, there are ...

WWW Animations of the Climate Research Unit-UK Temperature Record: 1856 to 1997

NOAA Paleoclimatology program provides six different animations of Climate Research Unit (CRU) temperature data. Data can be used to view globally mapped temperature for the time period of available ...
