Hi Jorgen,

I’m not sure you saw our news, but recently the Gonzaga Climate Center and our partners received a small NOAA grant to conduct a campaign to map urban heat islands in the City of Spokane. You can learn more about the program at


As it explains there and on the volunteer sign up page, the event will be one day this summer in July or August. It will involve volunteers driving vehicles with temperature and humidity sensors mounted on their window. They will drive routes across the city in the early morning, afternoon, and evening.

My colleague, Karli Honebein, copied here, is our Program Coordinator and is helping organize the effort. We are in the initial planning stages and things will quickly be ramping up. We had a couple of ideas to run by you.

Hope this finds you well.
