In the Fall 2018 semester, New Mexico State University began offering several pilot first-year seminar courses to allow new freshmen the opportunity to learn from experienced faculty in small, seminar-type programs that introduced students to discipline-based solutions to the major challenges we face as a society. These pilot courses had to be based on current general education curriculum, and although they were expected to lead to the same learning outcomes as a new general education class, they were also encouraged to focus on larger topics that were not disciplinary. This talk will address the conversion of an existing astronomy course to a FYS-style degree, the incorporation of the issue of climate change into an introductory course on planets, and course outcomes.
This presentation will highlight the design and implementation of the West Virginia Climate Change Professional Development Initiative as an example of how to engage with teachers and students on the issue of climate change. This research illustrates a variety of critical aspects of research and community activists, grant writing and funding various aspects of project costs and deliverables, as well as education and student climate change education and outreach, as well as supporting climate change education and communication with students.
Nonetheless, informal science education is perhaps even more relevant than formal science education for increasing adult science literacy. In addition, deliberative forums, community science research, and other engagement strategies, I will also demonstrate how cutting-edge informal science education goes far beyond traditional exhibits and programs by focusing educational goals rather than toward the individual, and using a variety of different types of active learning experiences, including deliberative forums, community science projects, and other engagement strategies. These will not lead to a greater understanding of climate science, but they also have a huge, concrete effect on communities' ability to prepare and adapt to climate change.
This session included a review of the current state of public knowledge of climate change and a sample of evidence-based communication strategies that can help improve public knowledge, tailored to astronomers and their unique perspective on the global climate.
Despite the real world urgency, climate change has received little attention in NLP. Activists and policy makers need NLP software in order to efficiently process the massive and rapidly growing textual content produced on CC. Climate Change Benchmark, a benchmark set of existing disparate datasets for analyzing model results across a large variety of CC NLU tasks systematically, is a key component of this gap. We hope this work will provide a common assessment instrument for studying CC text files.
The study of the impact of climate change and agricultural expansion on groundwater storage is of utmost importance in the evaluation of regional water resource balance and agricultural development. GWSA in the upper reaches of the ARB increased at a rate of 2. 0 mm/yr from 2003 to 2016, whereas the GWSA in the middle and lower reaches decreased during the study period. Temperature and evapotranspiration can all affect groundwater storage by regulating the wateru2013 balance, wetland reclamation reduces the regional storage capacity, and reclaimed farmland irrigation is the most common source of groundwater loss.
The lakes on the Qinghai-u2013Tibetan Plateau have undergone substantial changes. The lake area's northeastern Tibetan Plateau's between 1988 and 2019 were investigated, based on Landsat photographs, meteorological reports, and glacier and permafrost results. In sub-region I, which is the source area of the Yangtze River Basin, the most significant lake expansion occurred. The massive lake expansion in sub-region I took place about 12 years earlier than in sub-regions II and III. The relationship between glacier ablation and the change in the lake area was poor, suggesting that glacial meltwater was not the primary source of most of the lakes in this region. The permafrost degradation of the lake increased faster as the active layer thickness increased, which was consistent with the lake's expansion.
Climate change measurements don't appear to be used in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's climate change report. The climate change report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is based on a radiative forcing system, and thermodynamic analysis of the climate does not appear to be effective. Carbon dioxide reductions return the net chemical energy exchanged with the climate system to the earth's surface as heat. Nearly 51. 4 percent of carbon dioxide production has been sequestered by green matter, and surface greening is expected to reach 3. 0% per decade. On the other hand, Deforestation has contributed nearly 28. 5 percent of total heat loss to carbon dioxide. According to the authors, the increase in sea and average land surface air temperature temperatures is 0. 80 °C and 1. 39 °C, respectively. Artificial sequestration is not a photosynthetic heat sink process, and does not appear to be a viable strategy for combating climate change, unlike natural sequestration of carbon dioxide.
People who depend on basin water for their lives and livelihoods may have significant ramifications. Nevertheless, there are very few studies on the Himalayan river basins. Using the Soil and Water Assessment Tool, this paper aims to fill this gap by presenting a water balance for the Brahmaputra River Basin. Snowmelt was responsible for around 6% of the annual flow of the whole Brahmaputra, 21% of the upper Brahmaputra, and 5% of the middle Brahmaputra, according to a survey by the authors. Snowmelt's contribution to AWY is expected to decrease, while rain runoff is expected to rise throughout the entire Brahmaputra and even in the upper and middle Brahmaputras. According to the impact report, CC will affect the upper Brahmaputra and middle Brahmaputra, followed by the middle Brahmaputra. The findings can be used to support future water management practices in the basin considering the potential effects of CC.
We know less about the changes in egg-laying dates within a family's family and the environmental variables that influence this variation. Two sympatic passerines with different life histories, we used laying date and environmental records from 39 years to see how climate change affected laying date in blue tits and marsh tits. Both species' current mean laying date and mean laying date showed a negative correlation with maximum spring temperatures in both blue and marsh tits. In springs, there was no obvious temperature rise during the crucial time window of reproduction in blue tits, which was spread over a longer period of the season. However, there was no such pattern in marsh tits. Temperature change, not necessarily absolute temperature, may influence breed-specific phenology in a species-specific manner, perhaps due to differences in life-history strategies.
