Connect to a scientist

There are several networks of scientist who investigate aerosols and other areas related to air quality.

Find a scientist in your country and introduce him/her to the GLOBE Air Quality Campaign. You can also request the scientist to come to your school to explain about aerosols, her/his area of expertise and any ongoing studies.

The scientists can also suggest a meaningful student research project that can be carried out as a follow up of the campaign. Make an inquiry about the local professional measurements of AOT and find out if their research is related to the problems of air pollution in the place you live.

Aerosol campaign with scientists from Ireland

In Ireland, 13 schools participated in the campaign during school year 2017/18. The EPA was working in partnership with An Taisce to support schools in this campaign and their student research projects.

5 Irish schools presented their findings at the GLOBE Learning Expedition in Killarney in July 2018. Click here to read more about the school projects from Ireland.

Aerosols Campaign with scientists from Poland

The campaign for schools was organized by GLOBE Program in Poland and Aerosol Research Network AOD Poland in 2012-2014. Students from 20 schools observed AOT, visibility, sky color and other characteristics of the atmosphere. Research was lead by Dr. Krzysztof Markowicz from Institut of Geophysics at University of Warsaw.
