# S'COOL Lesson: Estimating Altitude of Water Cloud Base

Students begin by determining dew point using an aluminum can, stirring rod, ice and thermometer. Air temperature is also measured and recorded. Students then use those two data in conjunction with the Lifting Condensation Level approximation, to... (View More)

# Freeze Frames Ice Quiz

Participants respond to 10 multiple-choice questions related to glaciers and ice-caps. Immediate feedback, explanations and a final score are provided.

Keywords: Interactive

# Carbon Calculator

Use this interactive model to test how energy used in your home connects to carbon. This is part of Unit 3 of Interactives and Models: Carbon in the Future & You.

Keywords: Carbon use
Audience: High school
Materials Cost: Free

# Predicting Future Climate: The Global Carbon Budget

In this interactive, manipulate the future sources and sinks of carbon to estimate the atmospheric CO2 levels and global temperatures in the future. This is part of Unit 3 of Interactives and Models: Carbon in the Future & You.

Keywords: Carbon cycle
Audience: High school

# Climate Model

Using global data sets with monthly resolution, you will adjust variables in this empirical climate model to test the degree to which natural and human influences can account for observed global temperatures from 1979-2010. This is part of Unit 3 of... (View More)

# Mauna Loa CO2 Record

This interactive model lets you manipulate and work to balance the biologic (e.g., photosynthesis, respiration) and human processes that replicate the observed CO2 record from Mauna Loa. This is part of Unit 2 of Interactives and Models: Carbon Now.

Keywords: Carbon cycle
Audience: High school

# Rate-Limiting Fixing Factors

In this interactive, use NASA satellite data to test and compare rate-limiting factors for productivity in several regions of the world's oceans. This is part of Unit 2 of Interactives and Models: Carbon Now.

Keywords: Satellite data; Oceans
Audience: High school

# Global Climate Records

Scientists use various types of records to understand the rates of change in Earth's past climates, and the climate connections in the Earth system. Use this interactive to compare climate data from around Earth, and investigate whether they... (View More)

Keywords: Climate data
Audience: High school

# Atmospheric CO2 Spike Experiment

In this interactive, use results from a GCM to test how a spike in atmospheric CO2 levels could affect average global temperature, average sea ice cover, and atmospheric water vapor. This is part of Unit 1 of Interactives and Models: Carbon &... (View More)

# Carbon Now

Unit two of the "Carbon Connections: The Carbon Cycle and the Science of Climate" curriculum examines the role of carbon and the carbon cycle in current climate. Students discover how carbon in Earth's system is monitored and also investigate the... (View More)
