S'COOL Image

The Students' Cloud Observations On-Line (S'COOL) link to external site Project is an educational outreach initiative of the CERES experiment. The S'COOL Project was conceived to address a major goal of the Earth Science Strategic Plan: "foster the development of an informed and environmentally aware public." S'COOL students make observations of cloud properties as the CERES satellite passes overhead and forward their data to the NASA Langley DAAC via computer links, FAX, or mail. Students' observations are compared to the satellite-derived cloud properties as part of the CERES data validation effort. Feedback is then provided to the students on how their observations compare to NASA's satellite data. There is no cost to participating schools. In just over 2 years, S'COOL has reached over 250 schools in 21 countries on five continents.
