Sharing New Elementary GLOBE Aerosol Resources with NASA Education Community
What color is the sky today? The GLOBE Kids - Anita, Simon, and Dennis want to know why the sky isn't always the same shade of blue and sometimes isn't even blue. Through the new Elementary GLOBE Aerosols Storybook and Learning Activities, the GLOBE Kids learn there's a lot more than air in the atmosphere, which can affect the colors we see in the sky. This newest storybook and activities was developed with NASA's CALIPSO and SAGE missions and focusses on aerosols. The two mission EPO leads, Jessica Taylor and Kristyn Damadeo, presented these new materials to the NASA Science Mission Directorate Earth Science EPO Forum on August 10.  >>
