TRC: SoCal extreme heat conditions in a warming climate

Updated: Jun 18

In this Teacher / Researcher Collaborative (TRC) event, we learned about how a warming ocean impacts heat waves in Southern California from Dr. Mark Merrifield at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. This TRC was supported by the SoCal Heat Hub, which includes resources shared in this blog post. Click the video below to watch the recorded event and look below for the key resources that were shared. Also, if you missed this one, please click here to sign up for our next TRC event.

Resources from the Teaching Team



How you can use it for teaching and/or research

Jamboard responses on the following: How might you engage students with what you learned in the research presentation? Where do you see connections to your curriculum? What data, figures, or other resources would you like to get from the research team and the San Diego Science Project?

​Lots of great ideas on how to share data with students and how to make connections with the data shared and supporting student learning.
