High School (SCI) Earth Space Science Standards
[ESS3] Earth and Human Activity
SCI-HS.ESS3.06 Use data from computational representations to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity.
Clarification Statement:Earth Science/Environmental Science: Examples of Earth systems to be considered are the hydrosphere,
atmosphere, cryosphere, geosphere, and/or biosphere. Disciplinary Core Ideas ESS2.D: Weather and Climate
-Current models predict that, although future
regional climate changes will be complex and
varied, average global temperatures will
continue to rise for the foreseeable future.
ESS3.D: Global Climate Change
-Through computer simulations and other
studies, important discoveries are still being
made about how the ocean, the atmosphere,
and the biosphere interact and are modified in
response to human activities.
