Join 11 February Urban Heat Island Effect-Surface Temperature Field Campaign 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!”
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.
This year, there is a series of free webinars featuring Dr. Kevin Czajkowski (from the University of Toledo), GLOBE scientist for the campaign. Each webinar will contain the following: a scientist describing the science content; a teacher providing classroom implementation strategies, and a NASA educator showcasing a NASA resource.type: globe-news
