Students investigate whether global climate change will intensify the effects of hurricanes on coastal communities by determining the areas most vulnerable to hurricane surges by using topographic maps, a physical model, and a time series of hurricane data. Students then take on the roles of homeowners in a community and explore whether their home's position with respect to the topography and coast ... Full description.

The rate that the snow melts is crucial in determining how fast water will reach the streams and rivers and thus, how damaging the flooding may be. This resource provides a step-by-step calculation of the volume of water stored in the snow in the Red River basin. This resource is from PUMAS - Practical Uses of Math and Science - a collection of brief examples created by scientists and engineers showing ... Full description.

On this worksheet, students examine a diagram of global winds and learn the position of the prevailing westerlies, the polar easterlies, the trade winds, the horse latitudes and the doldrums, and that together, the uneven heating of the planet by the Sun and the Coriolis Effect are responsible for the global wind belts. The resource is part of the teacher's guide accompanying the video, NASA Why Files: ... Full description.

This textbook chapter presents evidence of a warming climate and outlines how a clear picture of global warming has emerged since the 1980s. Students learn about sampling error sources in climate data, and compare graphical data collected by climate scientists Jim Hansen, Philip Jones and Tom Wigley, as they follow the global warming hypothesis move through the process of science. This is the fourth ... Full description.

In this kinesthetic activity, students take on roles of either photons or gas molecules. Photons signal a change from visible light to infrared with a piece of folded construction paper, simulating absorption by the Earth's surface and reradiation to space. The play is guided by flipping a coin, and students see how stochastic processes result in 70% of visible protons being absorbed and reradiated ... Full description.

In this guided research investigation, students investigate the process of science and build media literacy by studying the public debate about climate change. Students compare media articles from 1989-2010, and observe that statements differ according to the source and publication date. Links to the articles are provided. This activity is supported by a textbook chapter, What is Global Warming?, ... Full description.
