In this Lab, we will examine the nature of past and future predicted climate change on the Earth.
The increase in temperature during a given time period is often used to describe the pace of warming of the Earth’s surface. Climate statistics and scientific studies indicate that the Earth has been warming generally. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), human-caused warming increased by an average of 0.2°C every decade from pre- industrial levels to around 1°C in 2017. It’s crucial to remember that this is an average rate and that warming may occur at variable rates in other places. Certain regions have already experienced warming greater than the global average, with land regions warming more than ocean regions.

Part 1. Trend analysis for a location(point)
The detection, estimation and prediction of trends and associated statistical and physical significance are important aspects of climate change research. Given a time series of temperatures, the trend is the rate at which temperature changes over a time period.

Part 2. Trend analysis in a global scale
NASA has been able to determine annual global mean temperatures back to 1880. You can access this dataset and do some simple comparative analyses using a utility that creates global maps at the following web address:
Using NASA’s climate dataset and mapping website, answer the following questions.
1.1)
Generate a map showing the difference between the July 2021 and the 1951- 1980 thirty-year mean of July. Is there any heat wave over Canada?
1.2)
Generate a map showing the difference between the decade 2000-2022 and the 1951- 1980 thirty-year climate normal.
a. Which geographical locations (Latitudes) have experienced the highest rate of warming?
b. How much is the warming rate in the Northern parts of Canada?
