Protocols

Start Collecting Data Today

Yes, it's that simple. You can start collecting today.  Below is a listing of protocol measurements that align directly to the campaign.

Protocols

Along with tree height measurements, the campaign will focus on using multiple data collection protocols to complement the tree height measurements.  It is recommended that students measure tree height with other protocol measurements, in order to allow for a more complete look into why trees play such an important role in our ecosystem.

Main Protocols

Biometry Tree Height

Green Up / Green Down

Land Cover Classification

Carbon Cycle

Baseline Protocols (Used to establish the location environmental conditions at a study site)

Air Temperature

Surface Temperature

Soil Temperature

Precipitation

Soil Moisture - Gravimetric

Soil Moisture - SMAP Block Pattern

The objective of taking these protocol measurements is to allow for students to have multiple data layers to allow for inter-comparison of data that is relevant to measuring and understanding tree height and to know what is happening in their local environment.

NASA GLOBE Observer Tree Height and Land Cover Observations

As part of the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign measurements and observations, you can also use the NASA GLOBE Observer for taking observations of Tree Height and Land Cover, two of the primary protocols for the campaign.
