The Global Carbon Budget 1960 - 2100

Type of Resource



This simulation allows the user to project CO2 sources and sinks by adjusting the points on a graph and then running the simulation to see projections for the impact on atmospheric CO2 and global temperatures.

Performance Expectations

HS-ESS2-6   Develop a quantitative model to describe the cycling of carbon among the hydrosphere, atmosphere, geosphere, and biosphere.

HS-ESS3-6   Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity.
