Description: 

"Just Science" highlights the easy-to-understand video map of climate change recently released by the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) study. The app features a color-coded map of the world that displays how the Earth's land temperature has changes between 1800 and 2009. Monthly data from local recording stations produce a red, green, and blue global visualization of the temperature's deviation from historical average. Using Just Science's advanced custom-tailored features, you can: interact with a color-coded video map of global climate change, explore details by zooming into continental regions, change playback speeds and increments to search for trends, visit Wikipedia to reference concurrent world history, follow Novim's news articles, and learn more about Novim and the BEST study.
