We often deal with dust thickly. So can we count the dust? So we can count the days with dust and divide them into categories?
Identify the local environmental/climate problem you want to investigate
We often deal with dust thickly. Dust that blurs our photos ,dust that makes cars not clean.
Dust in the area is mainly due to two factors: Dust generated locally by wind and human activity (e.g. dust blown up by wind in dry inland areas and dust brought through atmospheric circulation in the area .The main source of transported dust is the Sahara desert.
The explanation given by scientists for the increasing episodes of dust in the sky of the Mediterranean countries is none other than the desertification of the Sahara
Floods & droughts
Describe how you plan to investigate the problem identified and which data you plan to analyse.
Every day we will get dust data from meteo.gr (National Observatory of Athens. They will be divided into 4 categories 0 dust at all 1-2 low 2-3 medium 4-5.high 6-7 very high. Data is stored in a shared ledger. On the days with dust we will keep the meteo.gr (National Observatory of Athens) dust charts, and we will observe the area from the EO Browser paying attention to the changes that occur.
At the end we will show diagrams per month with the dust days. Ideally, we will make a time lapse with the images we have saved.
