Today (11 Feb) UHIE-Surface Temperature Webinar: “Let’s See What is Making Your Neighborhood SO HOT!”
Join the Urban Heat Island Effect (UHIE)-Surface Temperature Field Campaign Webinar #3 on 11 February (8:00 p.m. EST): “Let’s See What is Making Your Neighborhood SO HOT!”
During the webinar, Dr. Kevin Czajkowski (from the University of Toledo, Ohio, USA) scientist for the campaign, will review the GLOBE December data from the campaign, and will discuss the reasons for the differences in surface temperature. Angie Rizzi, NASA Educator, will show how to obtain satellite data from the My NASA data website, and will import the data to an Excel spreadsheet. Tracy Ostromfrom (GLOBE Mission EARTH, UC Berkeley) will link the latest poster on the science process to the GLOBE Student Research Poster template, which is used in all GLOBE competitions.
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.type: globe-news
