Meteorological Visibility Observations: A User's Guide

Meteorological Visibility Observations: A User's Guide

This Meteorological Observation Guide has been written as part of a NERC (Natural Environment Research Council) Research Experience Placement carried out in the School of GeoSciences, The University of Edinburgh. The aim of the research project was to investigate specific aspects of how global climate change affects the climate of Britain. There are two main aims to this project: 1. Conduct visibility observations from Blackford Hill in Edinburgh, observing to see whether in times of anti-cyclonic weather, pollution build up in the atmosphere reduces the observed visibility. 2. Analysis of historical climate models to see how the frequency of anti-cyclones over the UK has changed due to anthropogenic climate change. This guide is part of the former section. The procedure that follows is the procedure used over the period of the project, and the Blackford Hill example used is the actual visibility observation that was conducted. This element of the project is transferable to other locations with a suitable vantage point. The work can be carried out by a class group or as part of a specific scientific project for senior pupils.

Climate Change Scheme of work -  outstanding ofsted

Climate Change Scheme of work - outstanding ofsted

This is a topic that I have updated recently as a result of significant media attention. The lessons follow a logical structure and offer imaginative and creative ideas to help pupils understand all corners of the topic. Not only do pupils understand the causes and effects, they examine evidence as to whether or not climate change is real or a hoax. The lessons are as follows: Lesson 1- Intro to climate change Lesson 2- Climate Change, real or hoax Lesson 3- The Ice Age Debate Lesson 4- Worst Case Scenario Lesson 5,6- Impacts of Climate Change Lesson 7- Impacts on the UK This content is suitable for year 9 but is taught to a high level and is more than suitable to use for GCSE. Most content is taken from our GCSE lessons

Thinking Detectives Game: The Alps and Climate Change

Thinking Detectives Game: The Alps and Climate Change

Climate scientists are recording a change in the timing and volume of snow precipitation in the Alps. Ski resorts are now making ‘fake snow’ ski runs, either from mains water or from water in alpine reservoirs. In January 2017, some Alpine Ski resorts were at the point of declaring a water drought. This would mean that there would be no ‘fake snow’ and tourists would be unable to ski. Tourism brings employment and economic benefits to Bavaria. If the skiing season becomes shorter, would mountain biking be an option for adventurous tourists? While playing a board game, your learners develop their HOTS (Higher Order Thinking Skills) and discuss whether a fictional ski instructor, Richard Fromm, in the Bavarian Alps, should exchange his skis for bicycle wheels. Included in this guide is ‘Meet the Scientists’, revealing the real climate scientists who are Richard Fromm, Jack Schaeffer and Viktoria Engel.
