Cycling of CARBON:

Carbon, Climate & Radiation

HS-ESS2-6:  Develop a quantitative model to describe the cycling of carbon among the hydrosphere, atmosphere, geosphere &  biosphere.

HS-ESS3-5:  Analyze geosciences data and the results from global climate models to make an evidence based forecast of the current rate of global or regional climate change and associated future impacts to Earth systems.

HS-ESS2-2: Analyze geosciences data to make the claim that one change to Earth's surface can create feedbacks to cause changes to other Earth systems.

HS-ESS3-6: Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity.
