GLOBE Atmosphere Investigations Workshop
Teachers engage in atmospheric investigations during week-long training at NASA Langley Research Center. During a recent GLOBE workshop at NASA Langley Research Center, teachers worked side-by-side with NASA scientists and educators to develop meaningful atmosphere investigations by using NASA's unique resources, including observations from advanced satellite systems and real-time measurements using GLOBE instrumentation and protocols. Throughout the week teachers learned about various atmosphere indicators including: Clouds & Contrails, Temperature, Surface Temperature, Relative Humidity, Precipitation, Barometric Pressure, Aerosols, and Surface Ozone. Teachers met with guest speakers from the Science Directorate and had the opportunity to ask scientists questions about NASA latest research, missions, and what it's like to be a scientist.  >>
