Student Scientist Observations Campaign With A-Train Satellites

(Oct. 18-Nov. 5)

Students and teachers are invited to participate in a worldwide A-Train Student Scientist Observation Campaign from Oct. 18 through Nov. 5. The campaign provides a unique opportunity for students to make and report ground-based observations, which are coordinated with the overpass of four A-Train satellites (Aqua, Aura, CALIPSO, and CloudSAT). Teachers can apply the campaign’s activities to the ongoing science, math, and writing lessons tied to their curricula. A-Train scientists will also share A-Train imagery and data about Earth topics, such as sea ice and hurricanes, and will discuss these topics of interest through an A-Train Symposium Activities Blog (http://mynasadata.larc.nasa.gov/elgg). Information on the observation campaign is at: http://a-train-neworleans2010.larc.nasa.gov/
