Carolyn is helping to create virtual outreach for NOAA in Boulder. The idea is to have NOAA scientists to record 5-10 minute videos explaining about the science that they do. But she, her team and the scientists need questions!
At NOAA ESRL, the scientists work on many things, but particularly:
meterology, forecasting and weather modelling
greenhouse gas measurements
forest fire smoke
Having worked with some of the amazing people at NOAA ESRL, I know that they would be delighted to share their experiences. So do you as a teacher, or a group of your students want to ask a question!?
