View Resource NASA's Global Tropospheric Experiment (GTE)

NASA's Global Tropospheric Experiment (GTE) was formed as "a commitment by the United States Government to understand the human impact on the global atmosphere." Visitors can learn about GTE's use of data collected via aircraft and satellites to create atmospheric chemistry models that predict climate change. Through this extensive website, users can find summaries, mission maps, data,...
View Resource The Younger Dryas Event

This topic in depth deals with the Younger Dryas event, a short period of extremely cold temperatures interrupting the current interglacial period. It is currently debated whether the Younger Dryas event occurred solely in parts of the North hemisphere or throughout the world. The first website, (1), created by World History, provides a short, concise summary of the Younger Dryas period. Users...
View Resource University of Wisconsin - Madison: Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences

The Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of Wisconsin - Madison created this website to present its research in climate systems, satellite and remote sensing, and weather systems using a combination of theory, modeling, and diagnostic assessments. Users can learn how the department is utilizing and creating radiation and remote sensing technology to improve radiative...
View Resource Climate Kids

The Southeast Regional Climate Center (SERCC) created this fun, yet educational, website filled with games, activities, and other resources to teach children about weather and climate. Students can find a sequence of interactive surface weather maps at the useful Weather Map Activity. Through a memory game, users can discover the symbols regularly used in meteorology. Visitors can test their...
View Resource Armagh Observatory

This website presents the news, events, and research of one of the UK and Ireland's leading astronomical research institutes, Armagh Observatory. Users can learn about the Observatory's many research projects in topics including stellar astrophysics, solar physics, and climate and meteorology. The site presents the long history of the observatory and its instruments. Educators can discover the...
View Resource International Research Institute for Climate Prediction: ENSO Web

"Sure has been a warm winter," or "It's kind of been a cool spring, don't you think?" is the kind of weather-related smalltalk humans have grown to love. But with these anecdotal statements comes science and the ENSO Web site is just the place to go to better understand the El Nino-Southern Oscillation, or ENSO. As the site states in The Simple Picture section, ENSO "is a system of interactions...
View Resource Boston University: Climate and Vegetation Research Group

Hosted by Boston University, this website presents Geography Professor Ranga B. Myneni's Climate and Vegetation Research Group. The website links to publications about various research projects in the areas of Climate and Vegetation, and Remote Sensing of Vegetation. Some of the Group's specific research areas include Terrestrial Carbon Cycle, Global Vegetation Mapping, Clouds & Atmospheric...
View Resource National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - CMDL: Climate Monitoring and Diagnostics Laboratory

"The Climate Monitoring and Diagnostics Laboratory (CMDL) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration conducts sustained observations and research related to source and sink strengths, trends and global distributions of atmospheric constituents that are capable of forcing change in the climate of Earth through modification of the atmospheric radiative environment, those that may cause...
View Resource SPARC: Stratospheric Processes and their Role in Climate

Stratospheric Processes and Their Role in Climate (SPARC), a key project of the World Climate Research Programme, was created in 1992 "to consolidate knowledge on the role of the stratosphere in climate and develop understanding of the processes involved." The website provides an outline of the SPARC organization and its initiatives. Students and educators can learn about the major influence...
View Resource IPRC: International Pacific Research Center

The International Pacific Research Center's (IPRC) website addresses "climate variation and predictability in the Asia-Pacific region, including regional aspects of global environmental change." The site offers the goals and objectives of the research activities in IPRC's four main themes: Indo-Pacific Ocean Climate, Regional Ocean Influences, Asian-Australian Monsoon System, and Impacts of Global...
