Gather, analyze, and communicate evidence to support that Earth's climate and weather are influenced by energy flow through Earth systems.
Weather and Climate
Resources cannot be aligned to this standard, browse sub-standards to find lessons.
Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the sun’s energy moves among Earth’s systems.
Analyze geoscience data and the results from global climate models to make an evidence-based forecast of the current rate and scale of global or regional climate changes.
Use a model to describe how variations in the flow of energy into and out of Earth’s systems result in changes in climate.
Evaluate the validity and reliability of past and present models of Earth conditions to make projections of future climate trends and their impacts.
