Did you participate in the Urban Heat Island Effect – Surface Temperature Field Campaign in March? Dr. Kevin Czajkowski (Dr. C, from the University of Toledo, Ohio, USA), the developer of the surface temperature protocol, has posted the results of the latest campaign. “This has been a great year for the Urban Heat Island/Surface Temperature Student Research Campaign. More schools and more students have participated than ever before,” he said.

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.
