In school we were learning about climate change, and it led us to want to investigate further this into the problem. The more we researched, the more we found that not enough was being done currently and that is what prompted us to do this project.
What it does
This is a website that contains ways for visualizing, analyzing, and predicting various aspects of climate change including temperature, carbon dioxide, and sea levels. The data page contains graphs for historical temperature and carbon dioxide levels as well as forecasted temperature and carbon dioxide up to the year 2050. The carbon dioxide levels for nine major countries are plotted so each can be examined individually. There is a bar graph with the amount of trees that would be required to offset these carbon emissions for the world and the major countries. Also, the historical sea levels are plotted. In the predict page, the user can enter a valid year and month and the website will return either the predicted temperature or carbon dioxide value at that time. This web app is responsive and interactive so it works on multiple platforms.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We ran into some issues trying to hook the frontend and backend together but in the end these were finally resolved.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
In the process of writing this project, we all learned a lot more about full stack development and climate change.
What's next for Sea The Level
Further pages can be added to the website that contain more aspects of climate change.
