Air Temperature Data Challenge 

Did you participate in the Air Temperature Challenge? To celebrate Earth Day 2022, the GLOBE Implementation Office invited GLOBE students to participate in a global Air Temperature Data Challenge. The challenge encompassed a series of activities, starting on 25 March, that gave students the opportunity to engage in a global data collection and interpretation event. The challenge's objective aimed to:

  • collect air temperature data measurements simultaneously around the world;
  • visualize data with graphs or drawings; and
  • connect with the worldwide GLOBE community during the celebration and beyond!

GLOBE would like to thank everyone who went outside and gathered measurements during the air temperature collection event on 25 March.

Tip: There is a portion of the Air Temperature Data Challenge results in the Earth Day celebration broadcast video at the top of this page. See the full results of this year's Data Challenge.
