Summer Intensive Observational Campaigns

We continue to seek collaborators interested in participating in our summer intensive observational campaigns. This can include community science participants or researchers from other institutions with unique measurement capabilities. Please contact us at SW-IFL@asu.edu to initiate a discussion.


Each summer starting in 2024 we will engager undergraduate students in our “HeatMappers” program. Selected students from across the region’s universities will join researchers at our partner universities (ASU, UA, or NAU) in a six-week summer participatory research program. To reach across the entire region, and promote diversity and inclusion, we will focus recruitment on the area’s minority-serving institutions and tribal colleges. This pool includes 26 institutions; among them are two Tribal Colleges & Universities, two Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian-serving Institutions (ANNH), two Native American-Serving Nontribal Institutions (NASNTI), and 22 Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI). Application instructions will be posted as the program start date approaches.
