Using a mass balance model to understand carbon dioxide and its connection to global warming

In this activity, students explore the increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide over the past 40 years with an interactive online model. They use the model and observations to estimate present emission ...

Evaluating the Effects of Local Energy Resource Development

This is a semester-long jigsaw project in which students work in teams to explore the effects of energy resource development on local water resources, economics, and society. Students are presented ...

Gapminder: Unveiling the beauty of statistics for a fact based world view.

In this interactive simulation, students can explore global CO2 emissions displayed by different continents/countries and plotted based on the GDP. A map view is also accessible.

Simulation of international negotiations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

In this activity, students engage in a simulation of the international negotiation process in order to convey how the international community is responding to climate change. Participants learn ...

Carbon Stabilization Wedges

This interactive/applet allows the user to explore the potential increase in carbon emissions over the next 50 years, subject to modifications made by the user in various technologies that impact ...

Greenhouse Gases - IR Spectra

This animation allows students to explore the infrared spectra of greenhouse gases and depict the absorption spectra. Vibrational modes and Earth's energy spectrum can also be overlaid.

Electricity data browser

The Electricity data browser allows individuals and organizations to create, download, or view graphs, reports and tables based on energy data sets for 2001-2013 from the US Energy Information ...

Estimated State-Level Energy Flows in 2008

Sankey (or Spaghetti) diagrams parse out the energy flow by state, based on 2008 data from the Dept. of Energy. These diagrams can help bring a local perspective to energy consumption. The estimates ...

The Lifestyle Project

This multi-week project begins with a measurement of baseline consumptive behavior followed by three weeks of working to reduce the use of water, energy, high-impact foods, and other materials. The ...

Sea Ice Extension for the Earth as a System Learning Activity

The purpose of this activity is to identify global patterns and connections in environmental data contained in the GLOBE Earth Systems Poster, to connect observations made within the Earth Systems ...
