SOURCE 2022 has ended
The mission of the Symposium of University Research and Creative Expression (SOURCE) is to provide a university-wide forum for Central Washington University (CWU) students, encouraging equity, diversity, and inclusivity, representing all disciplines and experience levels, to present their mentored research, scholarship, and creative works in a juried environment that meets professional conference standards and expectations.

The 2022 SOURCE program is hybrid. Pre-recorded virtual talks are colored green and can be watched anytime. Live/in-person sessions with Zoom access can be found in the daily schedule. Thank you for joining us!

Climate change is a term that is always talked about amongst scientists. A genuine concern for the planet we live on is understandable. One of the most talked about terms in the climate change conversation is global temperature. Modern technology allows us to sample temperature with ease. We are now able to obtain past years temperatures in tree rings and ice cores. Averaged over the sample locations for each time period, we have an average global temperature for each year. A temperature anomaly is a drastic difference in temperature based on the average global temperature. As complex creatures we are extremely sensitive to temperature change. So in this data set we will look to predict the greatest temperature anomalies based on previous temperature data. If we can see whether there is a trend in the temperature anomalies, this may help us convince the masses that climate change is happening now.
