Service Description: This educational map shows the outcome of the challenge "Be a scientist! Mapping climate change at seas & waterways" launched by the Education for Climate Coalition and the European Atlas of the Seas in 2022. Schools across Europe were invited to become data providers for a new map layer in the Atlas. The challenge included 7 phases. The first two phases allowed participants to discover how the Atlas works. Teachers then voted for the topic of the map to be developed: water surface temperature at sea, in rivers, lakes or ponds. Schools could measure the water temperature in different locations and at different times. They provided the results of their measurements and all necessary related information (e.g.; name of the school/group, geographical coordinates of the location where the measurement was made, date and time of the measurement, method used to measure the temperature…) by completing an online form during the data collection phase which ended on 31 March 2023. By doing so, students learned about data collection, data harmonisation, data visualisation and data sharing. How did the schools measure the water temperature? Several schools used a thermometer but – thanks to the collaboration of the Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean (POGO) and Educational Passages – the Atlas Team also received data from schools who have built miniboats deployed at sea which are equipped with temperature sensors! With this map layer, everyone now has access to the data collected by the schools. The map can be used as teaching material by these schools, other schools and anyone interested! Thank you to all contributing schools, to POGO and to Educational Passage for their wonderful contribution!
