Welcome to

Several students showed up on December 5th, 2009 at the Morton Arboretum to collect our GLOBE weekly atmospheric data.  After examining the temperature data for the week, we went to Lake Marmo  to check for freeze up. Lake Marmo had a thin sheet of ice that was covering 40% of the lake, one week later it was covered from shore to shore.

Lake Marmo is located a short distance from our Weather Station in the Morton Arboretum.  We took 3 pictures of the lake from the site located at the red arrow and then we took 3 pictures of the lake from the site located at the yellow arrow.

Even though the lake has a layer of ice, water is flowing under it.

Information about the GLOBE program

GLOBE is and acronym for Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment.

GLOBE is a global environmental program that uses the internet to share studentís observations and measurements with GLOBE scientist and students.  My Randolph School  students recorded over 8000 environmental measurements during my 6 years in the program.

I was trained for GLOBE at University of Illinois Urbana     March 1995  

I served as a GLOBE Teacher Trainer at the following places:

University of Illinois Urbana     August 1995

Drexel University in Philadelphia  August, 1996  

New York University October 1996

 Ohio Aerospace Institute November, 1996

University of Illinois Urbana March, 1997

New Hampshire  April, 1997
