In this activity students learn how Earth's energy balance is regulating climate. This activity is lesson 4 in the nine-lesson module Visualizing and Understanding the Science of Climate Change.
This is a video overview of the history of climate science, with the goal of debunking the idea that in the 1970s, climate scientists were predicting global cooling.
This is an animated interactive simulation that illustrates differential solar heating on a surface in full sunlight versus in the shade.
This interactive contains four animated slides that introduce the greenhouse effect. An additional animation offers to 'explore more'.
This video provides a good overview of ice-albedo feedback. Albedo-Climate feedback is a positive feedback that builds student understanding of climate change.
