I do hope that we "see" many of you in our first webinar of Phase III of the ENSO Student Research Campaign as we transition to a focus on collaborating and learning more about water in our environment. Tomorrow evening, Oct. 3rd at 8 pm (ET), we will hear from NASA scientist, John Bolten about the many ways in which NASA studies Earth's water. You might be surprised to know that the NASA...

It is pretty neat when you can get two for the price of one- as most teachers can attest to with regard to trying to get everything into their curriculum. Did you know that this year, the FIRST LEGO League's challenge is focused on water. And what could be better, as that water is also the theme of this year's ENSO Student Research Campaign!  The LEGO Challenge Project states: "People use...

Just when you think that perhaps the weather systems are settling down- our amazing scientific instruments are able to detect a potential change! I never cease to be amazed at what we are able to learn about Earth's systems- both from the ground and from space!  This article from the New York Times just came across my newsfeed- "It's Like it Never Left: Another El Nino May be on the Way"....

One of the important aspects of a scientist's job is to look at the data that was collected and try to make sense of it in order to better understand natural phenomena. With the ENSO Student Research Campaign, we have a unique opportunity to analyze data and use the analysis to help us better understand the impact of the ENSO cycles on weather and climate in locations all around the...
