Dr. C (Czajkowski) is launching his Urban Heat Island Effect (UHIE)-Surface Temperature Field Campaign for 2018-2019 in the GLOBE Program!
He needs your students to collect surface temperature and cloud observations and submit the data to GLOBE.
More detailed information can be found at https://www.globe.gov/web/surface-temperature-field-campaign/overview.
This GLOBE Mission EARTH (GME) webinar series for 2018-2019 will be offered on Wednesdays at 8:00 pm Eastern Time. It is best for you to register for each webinar, so that you may receive notifications of any changes.

Using GLOBE UHIE-Surface Temperature Field Campaign Data to Develop a Research Question
Did you know that NASA uses your GLOBE data? Dr. David Padgett from Tennessee State University showcases the NASA satellites which collect surface temperature data and explains how that data is collected. In the teacher feature, Jeff Bouwman from Shumate Middle School, Gibraltar, MI will focus on how to get students to develop research questions. Dates & locations of GLOBE Research Symposia will be announced.

Visualizing the GLOBE UHIE-Surface Temperature Field Campaign Data: What Do You See?
Dr. C will take all the data collected so far and make a visualization. Dr. Nektaria Adaktilou from West Virginia University will compare the data collected by her students in Morgantown, WV to the LandSat overpass. Dr. Diana Johns, a GME teacher at Crestwood High School in Dearborn, MI will share some tips on how to get your students to analyze their data and her students’ participation in the IVSS.

What Have We Learned by Doing the Urban Heat Island Effect (UHIE)-Surface Temperature Field Campaign?
Dr. C will look at all the data entered in October, December and February. He will showcase heat islands in various locations on Earth and discuss the importance of implementing mitigation efforts. A panel of teachers will share their students’ research on the Urban Heat Island Effect. Next steps for students-upload their projects to the GME webpage.
