View Resource Paleoclimatology Education and Outreach

This National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) website offers a collection of links to paleoclimate (past climate) information and data. Links are organized by topic, which include: highlights from the paleoclimatology program; ocean sciences; coral cores; tree rings; pollen; and additional resources.

View Resource Forces of Change

This informative website from the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History suggests that "to understand our world, we must understand change." A thoughtful sentiment, and one that explains the site's basic mission quite well. Essentially, the site looks to explore climate change, ecological change, and cultural change. Drawing on a wide range of research, the site looks at how different...

View Resource Climate Models & Predictions For The Future

These lecture notes from the University of Michigan's Global Change curriculum provide information about paleoclimate and climate modeling. This website includes a list of suggested readings, an image-rich overview of the paleoclimate record (including sections on ice core and deep sediment analyses) and causes of climate change, and a very brief summary of the lecture notes.

View Resource Global Climate Change: A Glance in the Rear View Mirror

This Geotimes article provides information regarding the inference of paleoclimate (global climate change) from proxy data such as ice core (oxygen isotope) records and biota found in deep sea sediments. The article discusses the history of proxy usage, the basis of current proxies, and gaps in our understanding of carbon/material cycling and climate records.

View Resource Envisioning Climate Change Using a Global Climate Model

How do climatologists and others model climate change? It's a good question, and one that students of the physical sciences and members of the general public will find interesting. This particular educational activity is offered as part of the Earth Exploration Toolbook, which is an initiative of the Science Education Resource Center (SERC) at Carleton College. This interactive "chapter" from the...
