NASA SATELLITES STUDY EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE:CALIPSO, CloudSat, and Aura Partner with the GLOBE Program
Applications due March 10, 2006
CALIPSO, CloudSat, and Aura are three satellite missions that will provide students worldwide with a link to NASA research through their education and outreach programs. These satellites will be part of a formation of satellites called the Afternoon Constellation (because they cross the equator within minutes of each other at 1:30 p.m. local time), and are also known as the A-Train. The A-Train satellites will fly in close proximity, providing combined, detailed observations about the condition of Earth and assisting scientists with making predictions related to climate change.
An educator workshop titled NASA Satellites Study Earth's Atmosphere: CALIPSO, CloudSat, and Aura Partner with the GLOBE Program (CCAG) will be held July 9-15, 2006 in Hampton, Virginia. This workshop will primarily target middle school educators who will work with the missions by involving their students in collecting and reporting cloud observations and sun photometer data at the GLOBE Program Website. Participants will receive both a stipend and travel expenses. Support will also be provided for participants to present at regional workshops. Applications are due March 10, 2006 and are available at:
