Join the GLOBE Mission EARTH teacher webinar (05 December, 8 p.m. EST) and student follow-up webinar (08 December, 1 p.m. EST): "Mapping GLOBE Atmosphere and Surface Temperature Data Using ArcGIS Online.” 

During the teacher webinar, GLOBE Partner David Padgett (Associate Professor of Geography, Tennessee State University) will discuss a simple method to visualize and examine GLOBE atmosphere and surface temperature data using geospatial technology. During the student follow-up webinar, students will get to meet with scientists to learn more about the topic.

This webinar spotlights Tennessee State University's (TSU) Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Day and National Geography Awareness Week outreach activity. Ninth grade students attending Nashville's Stratford STEM Magnet High School collected GLOBE Atmosphere and Surface Temperature Protocol data on the Friday prior to the 2017 Solar Eclipse event. TSU geography students collected GLOBE data before, during, and after the eclipse on 21 August. Nashville was the largest U.S. city within the total eclipse area. The TSU students were required to develop a lesson for the ninth graders using the ArcGIS Online "Story Maps" template to "visualize" the GLOBE data.  During the classroom activity, the college and high school students collectively engaged in comparing and contrasting the data observations made at their respective campuses. Teachers attending this webinar will be exposed to a relatively simple method used to visualize and examine eclipse data using geospatial technology.
