The environmental monitoring system is one of five key elements provided within the EDU-ARCTIC educational program. All schools in Europe are invited to: participate in a program based on meteorological and phenological observations in schools’ surroundings; to report these observations on a web based portal; to have access to accumulated data. The monitoring system is available via: http://edu-arctic.eu/program/#measurements.
The document contains detailed information on the objectives of monitoring proposed within the EDU-ARCTIC project, general rules of reporting within the system, and implementation assumptions. It presents details on technological solutions. The most important part is a manual for teachers with detailed information on what and how to report, with widely illustrated field guides.
