Lab description and primary aims of the lab: 

Climate is regulated by the delicate balance of incoming and outgoing electromagnetic radiation. This applet first explores the climatic condition of various planets, focusing on Mars, Venus, and Earth. The second portion of this applet, the "Build a Planet" simulator, allows a user to alter the four factors that regulate climate: albedo, greenhouse effect, distance from the sun, and surface temperature.
