Linkages Between Surface Temperature and Tropospheric Ozone
Students use data microsets of mean near-surface air temperature and tropospheric ozone residual averages to infer patterns. Students analyze changes in tropospheric ozone and then hypothesize about the consequences of these changes.

Is It Getting Hot in Here, or Is It Just Me?
Currently, only 2.1% of global warming is felt on continents, while over 93% is felt in the oceans. The fourth activity in the series of 21 on global warming is composed of three activities that build off one another. In the first...
