Scientists say that the average global temperature has increased by around 0.5oC over the last century. Is this evidence of global warming, initiated by the excessive production of greenhouse gases? Students will look at real monthly maximum and minimum temperature and rainfall data taken in Southampton and Sheffield over the last 100 years to see if they can find any evidence of this warming. They will plot a graph and analyse the data using a computer package such as Excel.
