how CLEAN reviews teaching materials
Teaching Tips | Science | Pedagogy |
- Can be used to teach about albedo.
- Educator may need to look further into albedo - open water also reflects and ice also absorbs, but it's the relative effect; also explore with students how albedo works.
- Educator may need to alleviate confusion about how aerosols are both reflecting and absorbing energy.
About the Science
- Good visual of the radiative budget without any quantification of the effect of each of the factors.
- Because factors are not quantified, the graph stays current (publication date 2000).
- Passed initial science review - expert science review pending.
