Standard 3
Students will understand the atmospheric processes that support life and cause weather and climate.
  • All About Glaciers
    From NSIDC. Learn about the "life" of a glacier, read general info, or check out links to image databases.
  • Atmospheric Sciences Data Center
    Atmospheric information from NASA.
  • Carbon Dioxide and the Carbon Cycle
    See how carbon dioxide levels affect climate change and how its flow has changed over the past 300 years due to human activity.
  • Center for Climate and Energy Solutions
    Find information about global warming as well as the latest on issues and research.
  • Climate Data Online
    On this site you can find over 100 years of climate data.
  • Climate Science
    Information about climate science for both educators and students. Be sure to view the videos that explain climate science.
  • Dendrochronology: Tree Ring Studies
    See what scientists can learn by studying the rings inside a tree.

  • Earth's Radiation Budget Facts
    The Earth's climate system constantly tries to maintain a balance between the energy that reaches the Earth from the Sun and the energy that is emitted to space. Scientists refer to this process as Earth's "radiation budget".
  • El Nino
    The purpose of this lesson is to understand that El Nino is caused by changes in atmospheric and ocean content.
  • Physical Processes in Shaping Places
    In this lesson students will analyze the roles of climate and other physical processes in shaping places. Although this lesson focuses on places in the United States, the lesson can easily be adapted to other regions of the world.
  • Satellite Image Atlas of Glaciers of the World
    Provides images and information about glaciers and climate.
  • The Carbon Cycle
