How Much Warming?

This short video, is the fifth in the National Academies Climate Change, Lines of Evidence series. It focuses on greenhouse gases, climate forcing (natural and human-caused), and global energy ...

Introduction to Photovoltaic Systems

This activity introduces students to the process of converting sunlight into electricity through the use of photovoltaics (solar cells). Students complete a reading passage with questions and an ...

Earth's Energy Cycle - Albedo

Students perform a lab to explore how the color of materials at the Earth

My Angle on Cooling: Effects of Distance and Inclination

In this hands-on lesson, students measure the effect of distance and inclination on the amount of heat felt by an object and apply this experiment to building an understanding of seasonality. In Part ...

Modeling Earth's Energy Balance

In this activity, learners use the STELLA box modeling software to determine Earth

Temperature Puzzle

This NASA video discusses the impacts of the sun

Amazing Albedo

This lesson is a lab in which students use thermometers, white and dark paper, and lamps to measure differences in albedo between the light and dark materials. Connections are made to albedo in ...

Effects of Solar Radiation on Land and Sea

This brief, hands-on activity illustrates the different heating capacities of soil and water in order to understand why places near the sea have a more moderate climate than those inland.

Effect of the Sun's Energy on the Ocean and Atmosphere

In this mock mission, students become members of a research team and conduct a series of tasks to audit Earth

Earth's Albedo and Global Warming

This interactive visualization adapted from NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey illustrates the concept of albedo, which is the measure of how much solar radiation is reflected from Earth
