Friday 20 March 2015 – NEWEx – National Eclipse Weather Experiment

A solar eclipse briefly dims the radiation coming from the Sun, leading to cooling in the atmosphere with interesting effects on the weather. To study these effects, the Department of Meteorology at Reading University invites you to take part in NEWEx – National Eclipse Weather Experiment, a citizen science project to collect weather data during the solar eclipse for detailed analysis. We welcome participation from schools across the country.
