The Urban Heat Island Effect (UHIE)-Surface Temperature Field Campaign has begun – and will run throughout the month of October.

The campaign is focused on looking at the impact urbanization has on the Earth’s surface temperature and how the surface temperature changes the dynamics of the Earth’s atmosphere. The campaign is now studying these impacts in seasons: October, December, and March – during which time participants will collect and submit the following data: cloud data, air temperature, and surface temperature.

This year, there will be a series of free webinars featuring Dr. Kevin Czajkowski (from the University of Toledo), GLOBE scientist for the campaign. Each webinar will contain the following: a scientist describing the science content; a teacher providing classroom implementation strategies, and a NASA educator showcasing a NASA resource.
