Kenyan Participation in the GLOBE El Niño Campaign
Schools in Kenya are participating in the TAHMO initiative with the installation of 28 automated weather stations and data reporting to the GLOBE Program. With this grant YLACES will supply equipment for 5 schools to participate in the GLOBE El Niño Campaign by taking surface soil moisture and soil temperature measurements. The soil moisture measurements will expand the range of schools that provide observations in support of NASA’s SMAP mission. A sixth set of equipment will be supplied to support protocol training by GLOBE Kenya.Students will compare the soil data with the data from collocated weather stations.
