The Colonial Era Data Study is a wide ranging educational based climate change research project. This research combines the areas of history, mathematics/statistics, Earth science, computer/data visualization, and global communication. For Phase 1, we created a YouTube video starring Ralph Archbold as Ben Franklin, demonstrating the relevance and value of colonial era records in the modern analysis of climate change. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_LayE_wirI.
A description of Phase 2 of CEDS, expanding these concepts to middle and high school students, is contained in this YouTube video produced in Calgary at the August 2010 GLOBE annual conference http://www.youtube.com/user/globeprogram#p/a/u/2/PzjZ2xdWfC0
