  They are all tropical cyclones, but the name hurricane is used exclusively for those in the North Atlantic and the Pacific Northwest. How do they form and why do they usually occur in this part of the world? A power pump The most common mechanism of hurricane formation in the Atlantic - which causes more than 60% of these phenomena - is a tropical wave. When it reaches the Atlantic Ocean, the tropical wave may be the beginning of a hurricane, but in order for it to form, it needs energy sources, such as adequate humidity, heat and wind. In particular, it is...

The NASA GLOBE Clouds team never imagined this time last year that we'd be holding our GLOBE 2020 Community Cloud Challenge in the midst of a global pandemic. But GLOBE is about community and showing how science is better together! In the four weeks of the challenge, we had the opportunity to learn how eight different NASA scientists study clouds to better understand our atmosphere and the important role citizen science observations play in that. You also had the chance to learn about cloud-related activities from six different amazing GLOBE educators.   And...

Hello! My name is Faguni and I am a rising senior from San Jose, California. Over the summer, I participated in the NASA STEM Enhancement in Earth Science Internship program and was a part of the Mosquito Mapper Team.  What was originally supposed to be a two-week program at UT-Austin and the Johnson Space Center, turned into an eight-week virtual internship, all from the comforts of our bedroom! Despite the mild hiccup, our mentors worked hard to create and deliver an unforgettable experience that immersed us into the life of a NASA researcher and scientist.  Our program...

I worked  with a team of four other SEES interns to conduct an investigation into mosquito larvae trapping. We chose to research  the effectiveness of mosquito larvae traps in different geographical areas, as we noticed that many of the interns were having trouble with capturing mosquito larvae in experimental traps. Moreover, understanding what type of traps and trap bait type most attracted mosquitoes could offer insight into why areas had significantly higher mosquito populations than others. Array of experimental traps in WA We conducted investigations in five...

Cases of mosquito-borne disease are increasing in the United States. Because these diseases are directly correlated with the abundance of mosquitoes, finding what environmental variables impact mosquito populations is essential to prevent the transmission of disease. For the SEES 2020 Mosquito Mapper research project, our group decided to  focus on identifying the statistical correlations exhibited between mosquito abundance and topographic, underground, and climate variables. The analysis used GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper data. The GLOBE database was very simple to access...

Through my research, I tried to find a connection between plants and mosquitoes, so that humans can find a safe, natural, and aesthetically pleasing way to deter these disease vectors. I began my search for answers by visiting nature preserves in my area to sample water, set mosquito traps, and take pictures of the plants. I also used the GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper data from the GLOBE database to provide me with numerical data about how many mosquitoes are in an area with and without plants. To determine if there are plants in an area, I look at the land cover images that the...

Hi everyone, my name is Bhaskar J, and I'm interning with the SEES Mosquito Mappers research team this summer, in which we use the GLOBE Observer citizen science app.  There are a lot of moving parts to it, but overall it's been an incredible experience! One part of the program is catching mosquito larvae in our home-made traps. See the attached images showing how I made mine! Figure. 1  Steps I used to create a mosquito larvae trap. At first, I was a little distraught because I wasn't able to catch that many mosquito larvae and wasn't able to identify them....

To draw statistically valid conclusions about ecological trends, such as the relationship between land cover and mosquito population dynamics, land areas of interest must be sampled in a consistent manner. Numerous ground observations of local areas can help scientists gain insight of the landscape, especially in regions where remote sensing techniques fail to measure certain land characteristics. However, sending scientists to sample areas across the globe is not always viable. That’s why tools like GLOBE Observer App are so helpful. By recruiting citizen volunteers to conduct ground...

Coming into the NASA SEES Mosquito Mapper program, I was beyond nervous. Living in Washington State in an area with few mosquitoes, I had no idea how I would be able to collect enough data for the final research project, especially since this was the first time I was conducting research on my own. In addition to that, the program was entirely virtual! As a visual learner, I was worried that participation might be challenging. These worries quickly fell behind after the first virtual "Zoom" meeting. My mentors were super easy going and accessible, and happy to answer any of the questions...

Through the SEES Mosquito Mappers internship, I have learned how to skeptically interrogate the world around us and devise profound questions that can shape our understanding of the natural universe. I came to this internship knowing very little about science except for  the basics of the scientific method and the “facts” that we are mandated to memorize in our educational system. I started by doing engaging activities and watching webinars hosted by NASA scientists. I supplemented the knowledge that I gained with educational SEES modules on topics from “Climate Science...

Luego de 15 días, recogimos las ovitrampas para ver qué encontrabamos. En algunas ovitrampas no había nada y surgió la hipótesis de que como se había fumigado el colegio en los meses anteriores, era probable que no haya ningún zancudo.
