Carbon Cycle

This interactive animation focuses on the carbon cycle and includes embedded videos and captioned images to provide greater clarification and detail of the cycle than would be available by a single ...

How does Temperature Affect the Solubility of CO2 in Water?

This short investigation from Carbo Europe explores how temperature relates to the solubility of carbon dioxide in water.

As Permafrost Thaws, Scientists Study the Risks

This article and slide show from the New York Times, features several scientists from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, who study the effects of thawing permafrost in Alaska.

MIT's Greenhouse Gas Simulator

One of a suite of online climate interactive simulations, this Greenhouse Gas Simulator uses the bathtub model to demonstrate how atmospheric concentrations of CO2 will continue to rise unless they ...

Capturing Carbon

This PBS video shows how Klaus Lackner, a geophysicist at Columbia University, is trying to tackle the problem of rising atmospheric CO2 levels by using an idea inspired by his daughter

Comparison of the Effects of Increased CO2 in the Air to Seawater and Distilled Water

This well-designed experiment compares CO2 impacts on salt water and fresh water. In a short demonstration, students examine how distilled water (i.e., pure water without any dissolved ions or ...

The Global Carbon Budget 1960 - 2100

This simulation allows the user to project CO2 sources and sinks by adjusting the points on a graph and then running the simulation to see projections for the impact on atmospheric CO2 and global ...

Components of the Carbon Cycle

A simplified representation of the terrestrial carbon cycle side by side with the ocean carbon cycle. Fluxes and reservoirs expressed in gigatons are included.

The Incredible Carbon Journey

In this activity students explore the way that human activities have changed the way that carbon is distributed in the Earth

Frozen Carbon

This is a polar map of permafrost extent in the Northern Hemisphere. A sidebar explains how permafrost, as it forms and later thaws, serves as both a sink and source for carbon to the atmosphere. ...
