Telling Tree Story one-pager.FINAL[2].pdf

Take a Tree Height observation, and then send NASA a screenshot of your observation's latitude and longitude. You will receive data from NASA's Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission that gives you the amount of precipitation that fell for the location of your observation. Then you can use this data and tell a story about your tree- and this will become part of a global virtual project. This is a great opportunity for IVSS investigations!
