Hurricane Dynamics: Protocols and Data Sheets
Interested in collecting data about the featured phenomenon at your school? Visit this page to explore GLOBE protocols (data collection procedures) and student datasheets that support your students' investigations.
GLOBE protocols can be used to collect many types of data to examine the effects of a hurricane. Students can use the protocols to collect data and share their data with other GLOBE students around the world. As scientists continue their study of the impacts of hurricanes, they can use these data.
- Air Temperature
- Barometric Pressure
- Relative Humidity
- Soil Moisture - Gravimetric
- Soil Moisture - Sensors
- Soil Moisture - SMAP Block Pattern
Datasheets are provided to guide students in the collection of data. Once data have been collected, students have the opportunity to enter their data on the GLOBE website so that they can be shared with others within the GLOBE community. This allows for a variety of research to be conducted comparing data from different locations around the world.
Atmosphere Investigation Integrated 1-Day Data Sheet includes the following protocols:
Soil Moisture - Gravimetric (There are three different data sheets.)
