1 Laboratoire des sciences du climat et de lenvironnement (LSCE) 2006/11/13 CarboSchools session The carbon cycle and climate change, project of the LSCE (IPSL, CEA-CNRS, France) with secondary schools in Île-de-France Marc Jamous

2 Laboratoire des sciences du climat et de lenvironnement (LSCE) 2006/11/13 CarboSchools session Aims: to promote investigation rather than lectures to present the research world to students to have students projects in March 2007 In these aims, we will propose experimental materials with many choices of protocols visit classrooms to launch the project and raise questions present research jobs propose classrooms to visit our laboratory

3 Laboratoire des sciences du climat et de lenvironnement (LSCE) 2006/11/13 CarboSchools session Three subjects of thinking: dendrochronology, study of carbon sources and sinks, study of carbon exchanges between atmosphere and ocean.

4 Laboratoire des sciences du climat et de lenvironnement (LSCE) 2006/11/13 CarboSchools session Questions Can we get climate information from trees? Are all rings of a tree similar? Experimentation How to measure rings? Working in groups -> measure precision and experimental error Edit the profile ring width versus years dendrochronology Modeling From experimental results and with meteorological data, construction of a model ring width and meteorological events Model validation Profiles for past centuries (Xth or XVIIIth century) will be analyzed and compared with historical texts.

5 Laboratoire des sciences du climat et de lenvironnement (LSCE) 2006/11/13 CarboSchools session Questions Where does atmospheric CO 2 come from? How is atmospheric CO 2 regulated? Is the atmospheric CO 2 concentration similar all through the day, all through the year? Experimentation CO2 concentration measured in several places Construction of little greenhouses with CO 2 sensors Aims Understanding of the carbon cycle (daily and seasonal) study of carbon sources and sinks

6 Laboratoire des sciences du climat et de lenvironnement (LSCE) 2006/11/13 CarboSchools session study of carbon exchanges between atmosphere and ocean Questions Does any exchange occur between atmospheric and ocean CO 2 ? Are they similar all over the Earth? What changes in the ocean produce atmospheric CO 2 rises? Experimentation CO 2 Sea water clam

7 Laboratoire des sciences du climat et de lenvironnement (LSCE) 2006/11/13 CarboSchools session 11 secondary schools from level 6 to 11 publication in March 2007 results on a Website (opening: early December)
