Question description

For the final assignment of the semester you will select two graphical datasets from https://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and do the following for each:

1) Properly interpret the datasets as shown in the figures given

2) Discuss what the data contributes to our understanding of changes in climate

Second you will identify a study from the scientific literature that discusses a species of plant or animal that is affected by changes in its natural environment connected to climate change. You will summarize the findings of the paper, including the following:

1) How the ecology of the species has changed or is expected to change in the future

2) Describe the specific climatologic factors leading to this change

The assignment as a whole should be 3-5 paragraphs. Include figures from the NASA site as well as the paper you select, as needed.

The report is due next Wednesday at 3:00, and will be considered at the "Final" for the semester.

Climatology Dataset and Research Article Analysis
Introduction
Climate change is a developing concept for students and scholars worldwide. The available
material and resources at our institution is not sufficient to demonstrate and prove concepts of
climate change conclusively. Experimental research that could be demonstrated at our institution
is also not sufficient to conclusively illustrate the concept of climate change which research has
indicated that it can has tremendous effect to both marine and land lives. For instance, one needs
a serial data, taken over a long duration and covering a larger area to argue that indeed global
warming exists. In this project, analysis of one dataset on climate change and one research article
on climate change is carried out. The dataset of choice is temperature change since 1880 to
present.
Temperature change
From the NASA dataset(d.o.i, 12.12.2018), the dataset was customized to show annual mean
temperature and the Lowess Smoothing for a combined land and oceanic mean annual
temperature. The graph in figure 1 below was generated.
