The tropical Pacific Ocean is warming up! What does that mean for the way we measure the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO)?  Time to start looking at relative sea surface temperatures.

Students analyze complex real-world problems by specifying qualitative and quantitative criteria and constraints for solutions that account for societal needs and wants. This place-based activity discusses multiple strategies to reduce carbon emissions, and realistic paths to preventing climate change.

Climate has varied in the past, but today's climate change rate is much more drastic due to human activity. Students explore past climate cycle graphs and compare the cycles with the current rate of change.
