Great Global Investigation of Climate 1-30 September 2012

The next Great Global Investigation of Climate (GGIC) takes place throughout the month of September. Engage your students in:

  • going outside to collect data: precipitation, air and soil temperature; and
  • entering the data in the GLOBE database.

Who benefits from GGIC?

Students – who learn the basics of climate science, the value of gathering data and the difference between weather and climate.

Scientists - who need long-term observations of temperature and precipitation from all over the world to gain an accurate picture of the current weather in order to form a more accurate view of climate.
