The ACT Government is participating in a national citizen science microclimate monitoring project in partnership with RMIT University. Outputs from this research will help inform government policy on city cooling measures. The project will measure and record microclimate data from three locations (Gungahlin, Woden and Tuggeranong town centres) to see how buildings, street layouts and greenery affect temperature, wind and moisture. This is to be done by three teams on three consecutive weekend afternoons in summer 2018/19.
The project is seeking to recruit 105 volunteers (over 18 years old) to help carry out this research. It will occur over one weekend afternoon in summer 2018/19.
Keen to volunteer? Email your name, contact phone number and location preference to David Alexander (ACT Government) [email protected]. David will acknowledge your participation and make contact in Spring 2018 to reconfirm your availability on the time and date set by RMIT.
