March GLOBE Urban Heat Island Effect-Surface Temperature Student Research Campaign is On!
The March Urban Heat Island Effect (UHIE)-Surface Temperature Field Campaign is in full swing! It is time once again to collect observations of surface temperature, clouds, and snow – and add to the extensive data set that students and scientists, including Dr. Czajkowski (Director of the Geographic Information Science and Applied Geographics Lab at the University of Toledo, Ohio, USA) can use to study the urban heat island effect. Whether you are at an urban school, suburban school, or rural school, your observations are vital to this campaign.
The campaign – which now takes place in October, December, and March – is focused on looking at the impact urbanization has on the Earth’s surface temperature and how the surface temperature changes the dynamics of the Earth’s atmosphere.
