Great Global Investigation of Climate - June 2012
The next quarterly Intensive Observing Period of the Great Global Investigation of Climate (GGIC) will begin 1 June and continue throughout the month of June. Enjoy going outdoors to take your temperature and precipitation measurements and enter them in the GLOBE database. It's one way of taking part in the Student Climate Research Campaign. Visit the GGIC webpage for more details.
Collecting data throughout the year helps build a GLOBE database that allows you and other climate scientists to observe seasonal changes that vary across latitude and continents. These changes are influenced by factors such as climate variability, proximity to water, elevation, topography, droughts or impacts of extreme weather events. By observing your environment over time, you'll be able to begin to address the question "What is my climate and how has it changed?"type: globe-news
