GLOBE Field Campaigns
GLOBE field campaigns are regional and worldwide projects that provide students with hands-on opportunities to explore and learn about Earth through a network of students, teachers and scientists. GLOBE field campaigns are grounded in real science embedded in an inquiry-based, collaborative approach.
El Niño and La Niña are important climatic phenomenon that can have impacts on the climate globally causing flooding and droughts as well as causing changes in seasonal weather. These interactions around the world are called teleconnections. Considering the importance of this issue, a GLOBE ENSO (El Niño Southern Oscillation) Campaign has been formulated to engage students in determining where and how much ENSO affects local places and to put students in contact with their local environment.
The University of Toledo is leading annual field campaigns focused on the impacts of snow on Earth's temperature. Help the scientists answer "How does surface cover affect surface temperature?" Set up research studies at your school looking at the difference between paved and unpaved areas.
