A set of peer-reviewed, interactive, web-based materials was developed to help a global audience of students, teachers, science professionals, and the general public understand and visualize the fundamental science needed to understand climate change.
The resource was produced over a five-year period at the King’s Centre for Visualization in Science as an International Union of Pure & Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and UNESCO project in collaboration with the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), the American Chemical Society (ACS), and the Federation of African Societies of Chemistry. Additional financial support was provided by Canada’s Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) through the CRYSTAL and Undergraduate Student Research Programs.
