GLOBE Measurement Campaigns and Intensive Observation Periods

Contribute to worldwide science initiatives, collaborate with a global participant network, and learn more about Earth science systems with our GLOBE Measurement Campaigns and Intensive Observation Periods (IOPs). Our campaigns take an inquiry-based, collaborative approach that brings together students, teachers, and scientists from around the world to investigate Earth science's biggest mysteries. Similarly, IOPs involve GLOBE students, scientists, educators, and researchers collecting and entering targeted data into the GLOBE database during specific periods of time.

Available at both regional and global scales, there's many ways to get involved with GLOBE.

Regional Community Collaboration Initiatives

Outside of our worldwide campaigns & IOPs, you can find a host of regional initiatives organized by the GLOBE community. Gather measurements with GLOBE protocols, upload your results, and learn more about your local environment when you participate in a regional initiative. 

Tip: Some regional collaboration initiatives are limited to specific countries.
