CO2 Experiment

Join the Global Network of Schools Measuring Ground Level Ozone

Although ozone in the stratosphere protects us from harmful UV rays from the sun, ozone at ground level causes serious health effects such as asthma and damages crops and ecosystems. Ground-level ozone is formed in the atmosphere in the interaction of sunlight with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emitted by automobiles and industrial processes. Because of its toxicity, ozone is regulated by the Evironmental Protection Agency as one of six Criteria Air Pollutants.

Measure ozone at your school and contribute to the world's first global ozone database!

Visualize and Measure Black Carbon Inside and Outside Your School

Black carbon or "soot" is the second leading cause of global warming and is estimated to be responsible for ~20% of the global warming and ~40% of glacier melting that has occurred to date. Because black carbon remains in the atmosphere for only about two weeks on average, control of black carbon emissions has been identified as the most cost effective way for slowing climate change in the near future. Black carbon also has serious health effects, including asthma and lung cancer.

Measure black carbon at your school in this citizen science project and share your data with people around the world!

Measure CO2 at Your School and Share Your Data with Students Around the World

Carbon dioxide, the product of combustion of all biomass and fossil fuels, is the most important greenhouse gas. Average carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere have increased from 280 ppm to nearly 400 ppm over the past century and are expected to double within a few decades. There is now a consensus among atmospheric and climate scientists that these increased levels of carbon dioxide have already begun to result in climate change with increases in surface temperatures and melting of glaciers.

Measure CO2 at your school and discover the relationship between fossil fuel burning and global warming!
