Characterizing Climate Change – Part 1
Lab 1: Characterizing Climate Change – Part 1
Overall Learning Objective: Inspired by the findings from a recent UN report on climate change, the objective of this lab is to systematically develop a broader and deeper understanding – from facts to uncertainties. The lab is divided into four parts of equal weight from the assessment perspective. Each question emphasizes a different aspect of geoscientific thinking and learning.
Create Stage Objective: Provide answers to the questions in the “Create Stage” instructions.
