Students began by taking an online course on climate science located on our class Moodle: http://moodle.jacobtanenbaum.com. When they completed the course, the class designed and built a wooden picture post (http://picturepost-dev.sr.unh.edu/), which was mounted by our students on November 18, 2011 at the side of to the Piermont Marsh. Following their time at the marsh, student volunteer to take a camera home one weekend and return with pictures from the post. The photos are being uploaded to the University of New Hampshire site for a study of our marsh over time.
The project also includes water sample data, work with scientists, field trips to Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory and the Norrie Point Environmental Center as well as lab work in the classroom. Keep checking back as the site grows!
