Surface Temperature Protocol:  Surface Temperature Protocol Goals for the Training Session:  Goals for the Training Session Provide an inquiry context for the data collection and science content Provide accurate science content Review procedures for data collection Review data entry and analysis Discuss classroom implementation ideas Collect feedback from participants Inquiry Context:  Inquiry Context How does surface temperature vary with land cover (e.g. bare soil, short grass, tall grass, concrete, sand)? How does the time of year affect the surface temperature? How does surface temperature compare with air temperature? Can surface temperature measurements help scientists study the urban heat island effect? Local Inquiry Example:  Local Inquiry Example Why do GLOBE scientists research surface temperature?:  Help calculate the rate of heat and moisture exchange between the atmosphere and the soil Verification of remotely sensed temperature readings Why do GLOBE scientists research surface temperature? Science Content: What is surface temperature?:  Science Content: What is surface temperature? Surface temperature is the radiating temperature of the ground surface. Instruments: Infrared Thermometer:  Instruments: Infrared Thermometer Measures infrared (heat) radiation emanating from surface and converts to temperature Check calibration once a year Use thermal glove The Measurements:  The Measurements Surface Temperature Supplemental Site Definition Cloud Protocols Snow Depth Surface Temperature Collecting Data: Field/Lab Guides & Data Sheets:  Collecting Data: Field/Lab Guides & Data Sheets Field/Lab Guides: Surface Temperature Field Guide Cloud Cover and Contrail Cover Protocol Field Guide Cloud Type and Contrail Type Protocol Field Guide Solid Precipitation Protocol Field Guide Data Sheets: Surface Temperature Data Sheet Collecting Data: Protocol:  Collecting Data: Protocol Initially select from Land Cover Sample Sites, Atmosphere Study Sites or Soil Moisture Study Sites Fill out Supplemental Site Definition Data Make Cloud Protocols observations Pick nine random observation spots in the study site at least 5 m apart Read and record surface temperature Record local time-convert to Universal Time Measure and record snow depth Enter Data on the GLOBE Web Site:  Enter Data on the GLOBE Web Site Step 1: Confirm that a Land Cover Sample Site, Atmosphere Study Site or Soil Moisture Study Site has been defined. Step 2: Select “Surface Temperature Site Selection” from the atmosphere data entry menu Step 3: Select site and initial, correcting, or updating information option Step 4: Enter date & supplemental site definition data from the surface temperature data sheet Step 5: Confirm data entries on verification page Enter Data on the GLOBE Web Site:  Enter Data on the GLOBE Web Site Step 1: Confirm that the Surface Temperature Site Selection is completed Step 2: Select “Surface Temperature Measurements” from the atmosphere data entry menu Step 3: Enter date/ select site/9 UT times Step 4: Enter cloud and surface temperature data Step 5: Confirm data entries on verification page Looking at the Data:  Looking at the Data Parking Lot Temperature Comparison of Two Schools Classroom Implementation:  Classroom Implementation Inquiry Curriculum/Standards Alignment Assessment Classroom Management Getting Started:  Getting Started The GLOBE Web site has information GLOBE Help Desk or your Country Coordinator can support you as you get started. Get your students involved doing real science!
