2013 SI

The Other Two group is Karsten Theis, Michael Ching, Renae Brodie, and Anne Gershenson.


Learning goals:
Think of and explain potential mechanisms for how burning fossil fuel could change global temperature.

Make a quantitative model for your mechanism and explore the effects of modifying parameter values vs. modifying rates of change. This should lead to an understanding of how small changes in rates can result in large system shifts over time.

Use models to brainstorm and evaluate potential fixes.
