Stratospheric Ozone
Students explore observational data from ozone-sondes, TOMS, and UARS measurements to learn about changes in stratospheric ozone over the past several decades. -

Weather Map Interpretation
Students participate in a Gallery Walk to combine weather variables and create weather forecasts based on four different weather maps.

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?)

Ocean Circulation
Students view and analyze buoy, satellite, temperature vs. depth data to learn about ocean circulation and how is related to atmospheric circulation. -
