The summer 2002 GLOBE science research team at Elizabeth City
State University in Elizabeth City, North Carolina will be
active in establishing and monitoring 4 environmental sites
on the campus of ECSU.
The 4 environmental sites will be represented as the following:
For atmosphere investigations, the site name is ECSU_HSRT_AT;
We will record air temperature, minimum and maximum temperatures
from an instrument shelter; For hydrology investigation, the
site name will be called ECSU_HSRT_HY; We will collect water
samples from the Pasquotank River to conduct several experiments;
For soil investigation, the site name will be called ECSU_HSRT_SO;
We will collect soil samples and perform several experiments
under this study; and For land cover biology, the site name
will be called ECSU_HSRT_LC; We will use the land cover classification
system (MUC) to classify a small area of land on the Elizabeth
City State University campus.
By collecting environmental data from around the campus that
encompass these four domains; the students will gain a better
understanding of Earth and its interrelated cycles which comprise
an integrated system. The GLOBE high school research team
will also provide the data to help scientists to study the
earth's system. The students will enter the data from their
research of the domain areas to the GLOBE's training website
as practice data. The GLOBE high school research team will
utilize a variety of instrumentation and chemicals to conduct
studies of the Earth's land, air, water and biology systems.
The GLOBE high school students will contribute their efforts
to become efficient with the changes of the Earth system.
