The 2003-2004 GLOBE Program Research Team at Elizabeth City State University in Elizabeth City, North Carolina will establish and monitor three environmental sites on the campus of ECSU. With these three established sites, the research team will conduct investigations in the following areas, which are called GLOBE protocols: atmosphere and soil investigations.

For atmosphere investigations, we will record air temperature, minimum, and maximum temperatures from our instrument shelter located behind the Lester Hall building at Elizabeth City State University. With the newly installed digital multi-day max/min/current air and soil thermometer, this device is used to record daily measurements of maximum, minimum, and current air and soil temperatures. We will also record rainfall measurements with our rain gauge system located next to the instrument shelter. We will also test the pH level for our capture rainfall samples.

Further, by collecting environmental data from around the campus that encompass these 2 protocols, 3 pre-service mathematics teacher education students will gain a better understanding of Earth and its interrelated cycles which comprise an integrated system.

The team will upload the collected environmental data to the GLOBE website, the 2003-2004 GLOBE Program Research Team will provide these environmental data that will enable scientists to help study the earth's system.

The GLOBE Research Team will collect and evaluate the obtained data, and create graphical models to express the data both qualitatively and qualitatively using the GLOBE website data resources.
