NEW: Get inspired by the GLOBE student projects on aerosols and air pollution from Ireland. Students presented these at the 2018 GLOBE Learning Expedition in Killarney, Ireland.
2017 GLOBE student research on aerosols and air pollution (submitted for 2017 International Virtual Science Symposium):
- Aerosols compared in three countries by Helen Parkhurst School, Netherlands
- Aerosols in urban and non-urban areas by Heerenlanden College, Netherlands
- What are the meteorological conditions that cause the formation of clouds of fine particles? What is the part of black carbon particles in these clouds of fine particles? And what is the health impact? by Collège Jules Valles, France
- How Do Aerosols Vary in Different Regions? by St. Francis Xavier Catholic School, Pennsylvania, USA
- Local Aerosol Atmosphere and Its Potential Impact on Asthma Related Illness by Roswell Kent Middle School, Ohio, USA
- Analysis of Aerosol Optical Thickness Data during the Fall and Winter Michigan Months by Crestwood High School, Michigan, USA
Watch the video made by the students and teachers of Collège Jules Valles from France to present their project on aerosols:
For the youngest learners, there is GLOBE Elementary Aerosols storybook and learning activities (published in August 2015).
GLOBE Aerosol Campaign Team prepared classroom activities and experiments on aerosols and atmosphere. Learn about sources of aerosols and their impact on human health and environment.
Refer to the experiments on :

For the most current projects see the links at the top of the page.
There are two other student aerosol projects from the GLOBE Comenius Project 2011-2013 that brought together schools from 8 European countries.
Aerosols in Europe 2015-2016 - International Collaboration Project of GLOBE schools lead by the country coordinator from Norway, Karl T.Hetland. Read the article on the project meeting at Svalbard and see students presentations on the research they did.
