Protocol

Instructions for making an ozone measurement station and wind direction instrument.

Supporting Protocols

Protocols to help in completion of the main protocol
Students install soil moisture sensors and temperature probes and connect them to a Davis Soil Moisture and Temperature Station. Data are logged every 15 minutes and periodically students transfer these data to a computer and report them to GLOBE.
Students log atmosphere data using a Davis automated weather station. A weather station is setup to measure and record atmospheric measurements at 15 minute intervals. These measurements are transferred to your school's computer and then submitted to GLOBE via email data entry.
GLOBE schools participating in the Earth Networks Schools Program arrange for their data to be transferred automatically to GLOBE. A special GLOBE Atmosphere Study Site is defined for the school's Earth Networks weather station, and this activates an automatic transfer of their Earth Networks data to the GLOBE database.
Students log atmosphere data using a RainWise automated weather station. A weather station is setup to measure and record atmospheric measurements at 15 minute intervals. These measurements are transferred to your school's computer and then submitted to GLOBE via email data entry.
Students log atmosphere data using a WeatherHawk automated weather station. A weather station is setup to measure and record atmospheric measurements at 15 minute intervals. These measurements are transferred to your school's computer and then submitted to GLOBE via email data entry.

Step-by-step instructions for collection data according to the protocols.

Learning Activities

Activities to help students learn more about the instruments and protocols
Students use GLOBE visualizations to display student data on maps and to learn about seasonal changes in regional and global temperature patterns.
Students measure temperature change in soil, water and air as they are exposed to the heating action of the sun.
Students construct one or more contour maps using GLOBE data.
Students use GLOBE data and graphing tools to compare the influence of latitude, elevation, and geography on seasonal patterns.
