Student Research Reports
A Comparison of Daily Air Temperature and Number of Observed Contrails
Organization(s):Lexington School for the Deaf
Student(s):Starlyn C., Omar J-F., Vanessa R., Tayqwan R.
Grade Level:Secondary School (grades 9-12, ages 14-18)
GLOBE Teacher:Jillian Anderson
Report Type(s):U.S. Student Research Symposia (SRS)
The intent of this research project was to compare the local daily air temperature, as recorded from Weather.com, to the number of contrails observed by a set of students at Lexington School for the Deaf. The hypothesis that more contrails would be observed when the temperature was lower (colder) was not supported by the data collected during this experiment.
