Includes natural changes (cyclic variability, volcanic eruptions, solar output) and human-caused changes (due to GHG emissions and land use changes)

This video is the first of a three-video series from the Sea Change project. It features the field work of scientists from the US and Australia looking for evidence of sea level rise during the Pliocene era when Earth was (on average) about 2 to 3 degrees Celsius hotter than it is today.

This video features research conducted at University of Colorado's Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research, which studies isotopes of hydrogen trapped in ice cores to understand climate changes in the past.

The video offers a simple and easy-to-understand overview of climate change. It poses basic questions such as 'What is it?' and 'How will it effect us?' and effectively answers those questions.

UN Climate Change Learning Partnership Releases Learning Resources Guides on Climate Change Science

The UN Climate Change Learning Partnership released two resource guides to help people understand the science of climate change. The two guides provide a tour of the best & most relevant resources on climate change science.

This webinar will examine how variations in the tropical Pacific can affect high-latitude regions such as Alaska.
