Global Temperature Change in the 21st Century

In this TIEE dataset, students address the question of how global global temperatures change during the 21st century, and how these changes vary geographically, seasonally, and depending upon future human activities.

Students consider how to detect trends in large data sets against a background of variation. They use output from global climate models to examine projected climate change during the 21st century under a range of greenhouse gas emissions scenarios.
