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.
