Description:

Earth’s climate is a product of and is affected by many things—and it’s changing. The factors at play in shaping our climate as well as the manifestation of its effects are geographic in nature. GIS technology and methods are vital in documenting, monitoring, analyzing, and predicting these dynamic activities and interdependencies. Climate scientists and others in numerous careers and disciplines use GIS and its integrative nature to tackle these issues. You can, too. This activity appeared in the 2009-2010 Earth Science Week kit from the American Geological Institute (www.agiweb.org), as the November 2009 calendar activity.
