Just one moment,
Scientists are currently using data associated with a change in the extent of ice sheets, glaciers, sea ice, and snow on ice and land to explore the effects of global climate change and the various factors that are affecting these changes.
GLOBE protocols have been developed as a collaborative effort involving scientists, educators and citizen scientists. Data sheets have been developed for the purpose of a unified method of data collection.
The purpose of the Freshwater Ice Phenology Protocol is to monitor the freeze-up and breakup processes on a selected pond/lake or large creek/river to determine the duration of the annual ice cover.
In the GLOBE Learning Activity, An Alaskan Spring Mystery: A GLOBE Data Exploration, students analyze data about the timing of budburst for a tree species over three years in the same location.
How does Lake Erie ice cover affect our snowfall in the winter? In 2012, the GLOBE students at our school found out that the average annual precipitation for our town has increased over the past fifty years. Temperatures have not changed very much.
