What is the Current State of the El Niño Event? Sign Up for 17 May GLOBE El Niño Field Campaign Webinar and Find Out
Sign up today for the 17 May GLOBE El Niño Field Campaign Webinar: “The 2015-2016 El Niño Event.” This webinar will begin at 8:00 p.m. EDT (12 a.m. 18 May UTC).
In this hour-long webinar, a NASA scientist will share the current state of the 2015-2016 El Niño event, and will discuss whether this El Niño matched the predictions for how global weather patterns would be impacted. Participants will also learn how to use the GLOBE data visualization tools to compare and contrast the El Niño Student field campaign variables from schools around the world.
As part of the GLOBE El Niño Field Campaign, a suite of six GLOBE measurement protocols (including the SMAP protocol) are serving as ways to identify environmental changes affected by El Niño. During the campaign, you can participate in regular webinars to discuss the mechanics of the campaign, receive updates on data collection, and explore science with experts. Register for all of the webinars here!
Throughout the campaign, updates about data collection and analysis, as well as guest blogs from scientists about how they study El Niño and teachers doing data collection with their students will be posted. Keep checking back here!type: globe-news
