In April, researcher Dr. Ronald Cohen
students and teacher with beacon sensor
and his students mounted an atmospheric sensor on the roof of Skyline High school to monitor greenhouse gases. This sensor will allow Dr. Cohen to take ongoing readings of CO2 and other greenhouse gases, as part of the BEACON project, funding by the National Science Foundation. GLOBE CAP students will be able to compare their GLOBE readings with those of Dr. Cohen's sensors, enabling rich learning in data collection, measurement approaches, data interpretation, and atmospheric science. Additional sensors are being placed in other locations throughout the East Bay of California.
