Continuation of Title: ...can be Solved by the Methods of Quadratics
An empirical climate model (ECM) takes a statistics-based approach in modelling the global Earth temperature as dependent on various forcings, such as the levels of greenhouse gases and solar radiation. Our web application visualizes such a model. Specifically, through an interactive interface, the application enables users to directly explore how four forcings can account for the variation and change in Earth’s mean global temperature record. The application is intended to be used in educational settings. For instance, it will be part of an online curriculum developed by the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS). It is live at https://ecm.coloradocollege.edu/.
