How Do You Download Dust Observations Reported through GLOBE? Read This Blog and Find Out!
Citizen scientists from around the world have been reporting dust events using the NASA GLOBE Observer App. In a recent Community Blog, “How to Download Dust Observations Reported through GLOBE,” NASA GLOBE Clouds Project Scientist Marilé Colón Robles offers step-by-step instructions on how to download dust observations via two different options.
Option 1 explains how to download the data to a spreadsheet. Option 2 explains how to download the data to a JSON or GeoJSON file. (For both options, you need to download clouds data first because dust data are part of the clouds data set, and then filter for observations.)

Your observations will be used by scientists to verify satellite observations and see if their models have successfully predicted these dust storms and help scientists alert communities to better prepare for the harmful impacts of these storms.
