Measure heat in the Adelaide streets with researchers from RMIT & UNSW
The number of extreme hot days is predicted to increase over the next few decades in all Australian cities with negative impacts on public health, mortality rates, energy demand, water supply, the environment and the economy. RMIT and Uni of NSW are looking for people to become a “citizen scientist” for one fun afternoon to join in a national microclimate measurement in the hot weather. You’ll participate in a two-hour session with other volunteers to record temperature, humidity, wind speed and other data.
No experience necessary, all training, equipment and support provided on the day. You can watch a 3-minute video here to see what you’ll be doing!
Children aged 12 and older can participate if supervised.
Before you register your interest in participating in this ground-breaking environmental project that will inform researchers, policy-makers and YOU on the impact of urban environment and heat, read all the information to: www.citizenscienceproject.org.au.
