NCAR Online Education - Content Pages from Web-based Courses
The National Center for Atmospheric Research offered web-based climate change
education courses from 2007 - 2010 for teachers seeking professional
development on this difficult topic. In order to increase access to this
information for teachers, we also made much of the content from these online
courses available here, for you to use outside of an online course framework.
Readings are available here from our courses "Introduction to Earth's Climate",
"Earth System Science: A Climate Change Perspective", and from "Understanding
Climate Change Today".
