Applications of Chemistry Through Climate Science

These lessons are intended for a high school chemistry course as stand-alone topics embedded within existing chemistry curriculum. The goal is not to teach the entirety of climate change but rather to give students an understanding of chemistry through the lens of climate change. Additionally, it is intended to provide students with a better view of how science is done, what other careers are available for students besides "research scientist," and to connect their high school chemistry course with the real world. There are eight units within the module including: black carbon, pollution and aerosols, greenhouse gases, science and careers, isotopes and ice cores, ozone, societal impacts of climate change, and finding solutions to climate change. Each has a unique activity for the students (i.e. jigsaw reading, lab experiments, comic strips, Socratic seminar, etc) and any information given to students is visually-driven (pictures, animations, videos, etc).

Three types of climate proxies -- tree rings, fossils, and ice cores -- are the subjects of lessons that will help K-5 students understand that Earth's climate has been different in the past and that scientists can reveal its history. This article is from the science lessons column of the free, online magazine Beyond Weather and the Water Cycle. The magazine is structured around the seven essential principles of climate literacy and identifies age-appropriate resources for young learners. (less)

This class examines tools, data, and ideas related to past climate changes as seen in marine, ice core, and continental records. The most recent climate changes (mainly the past 500,000 years, ranging up to about 2 million years ago) will be emphasized. Quantitative tools for the examination of paleoceanographic data will be introduced (statistics, factor analysis, time series analysis, simple climatology). (less)

Polar ice sheets are sensitive indicators of current climate and also preserve evidence of past climate conditions. Scientists studying Earth's climate history core thousands of meters deep into ancient ice to retrieve gas bubbles trapped in ice sheets. Ice cores help reconstruct climatic conditions from hundreds of thousands of years ago. Join Dr. Jeff Severinghaus as he explains how gas bubbles are trapped, how they provide detailed chemical clues to the past and how they are helping to shape future climate scenarios.

This module introduces students to the use of proxy data as a way to determine past climate. Students will get an overview of proxy sources, with an emphasis on how the ratio of oxygen isotopes in ice cores is used to uncover information about paleoclimates. Students will work with raw ice core oxygen-18 and temperature data from Greenland (1829-1970) using Excel to create charts which will allow them to analyze data and draw conclusions about the connection between oxygen-18 levels and temperature. This module also includes a video, demonstration, formative assessment worksheet and graphing activity. (less)
