Clouds and Water Cycle
Students' Cloud Observations On-Line. We will be observing clouds daily to aid NASA in collecting data about how Earth's cloud cover reflects the Sun's light energy back into space as well as trapping heat energy in the atmosphere.
Project Question: How do clouds transmit and/or reflect radiation? Do clouds cool down or heat up Earth's climate?
Data Entry for S'COOL Observations
Help NASA answer the question: do clouds reflect solar energy or absorb solar energy? Please use the link to add your cloud and temperature observations to the S'COOL database.
