Title: Understanding the Global Carbon Cycle
Carbon Cycle Simulator Web Address URL:
[SC2015] (5) 14: Use a model to represent how any two systems, specifically the atmosphere,
biosphere, geosphere, and/or hydrosphere, interact and support life (e.g.,
influence of the ocean on ecosystems, landform shape, and climate; influence of
the atmosphere on landforms and ecosystems through weather and climate;
influence of mountain ranges on winds and clouds in the atmosphere).Digital Tool Description: This lab uses a robust model of the carbon cycle to give you an intuitive sense for how carbon circulates through the atmosphere, biosphere, oceans, and crust.
Using the simulator, you will experiment with the human factors that contribute to this rise and explore how different inputs to the carbon cycle might affect the concentrations of the greenhouse gas CO2.
