Contribute to Science in Small Ways

This is a re-post from a blog I follow through Discovery, The Intersection. It’s a simple way to contribute to a citizen science project from Science for Citizens.

If it’s sunny wherever you are today between 4:00 and 7:00 pm local time, contribute to science by taking a photo of a blank white piece of outside in the sun (try to avoid cloud cover). Your photo will be used in an informal study to measure how much of the sun’s energy is reflected back into the skies from the Earth — our planet’s “albedo.” It’s one way scientists can monitor how much energy – and heat – is being absorbed by our planet.

To read the original post by Darlene Cavalier and get directions on how to participate, follow this link: Help the planet TODAY between 4:00 – 7:00 pm local time
