Today (20 February) GLOBE Mission Mosquito Citizen Science Webinar: “Science is Reproducible"
Citizen Scientists – Join the GLOBE Mission Mosquito (GMM) Field Measurement Campaign webinar ”Science is Reproducible – Sharing Research with Everyone, Everywhere” on Wednesday, 20 February at 2:00 p.m. EST (7:00 p.m. UTC).
During this “sharing data” webinar, participants will experience a short tutorial on how to use the GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper (GO MHM) App, and will hear about new research from the field. We will also start the GMM Phenology Project, and show how citizen scientists participating in this campaign will create a map of first appearances of mosquitoes in the United States (and changes in the mosquito season in the Southern Hemisphere).

The GLOBE Mission Mosquito Campaign
The goal of GLOBE Mission Mosquito is to create an organized citizen science community that will conduct and report local observations using the GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper App. Using the mobile app, citizen scientists of all ages (including K-12 students) will identify potential breeding sites for mosquitoes, sample and count mosquito larvae, and (with optional equipment), examine and photograph a specimen to identify its genus.
