Today (15 August): South American Eclipse 2019 Webinar: “Now What Do I Do With the Data?”
On 02 July 2019, a total solar eclipse passed across the southern part of South America. The eclipse began over the Pacific Ocean, and the lunar shadow entered South America near La Serena, Chile, and ended near Chascomús, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Outside this path, a partial solar eclipse was visible in the rest of Chile and Argentina, as well as in Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay; and in parts of Colombia, Brazil, Venezuela, and Panama.
On Thursday, 15 August (9:30 a.m. EDT/1:30 UTC), the webinar “Now What Do I Do With the Data?” will be presented. In the scientific process, after the collection of data comes the analysis and making conclusions. In this webinar, we will present a summary of how much data was collected during the eclipse, as well a professional scientist’s view of the data, and tips and ideas for student research projects, including the opportunity to submit projects to GLOBE’s International Virtual Science Symposium.
This is Webinar #4 in a series of webinars that are intended for GLOBE teachers and students in South America (especially Argentina and Chile; however, they are open to anyone who is interested) to learn about eclipses and to get some tips for analyzing the data they collect. The webinars will be held in Spanish.
