In this lab experience, students carry out an investigation to observe the connection between the increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and the reduction in both sea ice and glacial ice. Using a direct heat source, students compare the amount of ice that is melted as temperature increases in an experimental bottle and a control bottle. An antacid effervescent tablet is added to the experimental bottle to release additional carbon dioxide in the experimental bottle. By completing this investigation students gain a better understanding of the composition of Earth’s atmosphere and how gases like carbon dioxide and water vapor trap some of the radiation emitted by Earth. Students will see firsthand the effects of additional greenhouse gases being added to the atmosphere.
