View Resource Warming, Cooling, and Urban Ozone Pollution

Created by David Smith for the Connected Curriculum Project, the purpose of this module is to study data that may be modeled by a differential equation of the formdy/dt = k (y - b)-- in particular, to determine the growth or decay constant and the stable equilibrium level directly from the data. This is one with a much larger set of learning modules hosted by Duke University.

View Resource Hole in the Sky

In this lesson, students use a Web-based customized version of ImageJ to examine images of atmospheric ozone levels over the South Pole to determine the months of lowest ozone levels and changes in ozone levels since 1979. Some of the causes for the decline in ozone are introduced.

View Resource Where is the Ozone Layer?

Created by Dale Harak and Anita Salem for the Connected Curriculum Project, the purpose of this project is to investigate the question "Where is the ozone layer?" by examining the change in photon flux (a measure of sunlight intensity) as a function of altitude. This is one within a much larger set of learning modules hosted by Duke University.

View Resource Ground-level Ozone: Your Vehicle

In this activity, students quantify and analyze their personal contributions of smog-forming compounds due to driving. The activity builds upon the previous lesson (Ground-Level Ozone). The students will review online materials on vehicle emissions and use an environmental calculator produced by Environmental Defense to examine their individual emissions of ozone-forming compounds. They will...

View Resource Ozone Depletion

Discussion of holes in the stratospheric ozone layer usually revolves around investigations of the thickness of the layer near the South Pole. This online activity allows users to study the thickness of the ozone layer over any location on Earth to see how it has changed over time. This is done by plotting historical data from the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) Program, which has been in...
