Together with the European Atlas of the Seas, we are happy to launch the science action phase of the community challenge "Be a scientist! Mapping climate change at seas & coast"!
Climate change can be traced and visualised in many ways.
The community has collectively chosen to do this with its own water surface temperature map in the European Atlas of the Seas.
This interactive map will showcase all school measurements made and make them explorable for class discussions.
This map is empty for the moment.
So now, these temperatures need to be measured and reported across the EU by the community!
Explore your surroundings, learn about data collection & treatment and become a marine geographer with us.
- Teachers & trainers from any level – guide your pupils through measuring water temperatures and submitting data to us & delve into the many possible class activities around it.
- Students from any level – gather and measure what is going on around your school.
Let’s be scientist all over Europe and map water temperatures locally to create our common school map.
1. Measure the water surface temperature at your water body. No internet connection needed at this stage.
2. Fill in the online form: https://ee.kobotoolbox.org/x/RlixrmI2
Teachers and students can access the form on computer or mobile phone. Mandatory fields are indicated with a star. Other fields are optional. The form cannot be submitted if they are not completed.
3. Let us know in the comments below if you intend to participate! Which school activities will you run around exploring, collecting and reporting these data?
4. We are here to help you. Let us know what you would need to run this challenge. More guidelines? Time? Certificates for agreement with headmasters? A conversation with the challenge hosts?
"What can you do with it?", you ask yourself? Here some inspiration:
