NASA S'Cool Cloud Observation Program

The S'COOL Project involves students (ages 5-20+) in real science, making and reporting ground truth observations of clouds to assist in the validation of NASA's CERES satellite instruments. 

Clouds are an important part of our atmosphere, and scientists are studying how they affect our weather and climate. S'COOL observations provide one more piece of the puzzle (description taken from S'COOL Project website).

Our classroom will be participating in the program by making daily observations using the following form.

After the data is collected, it will be sent to NASA's scientists.  Click below to be taken to the data reporting website.

The data will then be used to help calibrate the CERES weather instrument!
