Check out this the Arctic and Earth SIGNs video to explore how climate models are used in climate change research.
Students play the role of nitrogen atoms traveling through the nitrogen cycle to gain an understanding of the varied pathways through the cycle and the relevance of nitrogen to living things.
The processes comprising the Earth’s environment are interconnected.
Scientists are interested in learning how the vegetation (collection of plants) of an area can be used to study Earth's climate.
This investigation is part of the NASA: Mission Geography Module "What are the causes and consequences of climate change?" that guides students through explorations in climatic variability and evidence for global climate change.
