STUDENT RESEARCH PROJECTS

Abstract

Summary

This project allows students to better understand the scope and pace of climate change by conducting their own analyses. Using data readily available from NASA and NOAA, students can apply their knowledge of regression models (or of the modeling of rates of change). The results lend themselves to a writing assignment in which students demonstrate their understanding by explaining their findings to a non-expert.
