Did you know that NASA satellite data is being used to predict,monitor, and respond to vector-borne and water-related disease around the world? Imagine the value of using both GLOBE ground-based data; such as precipitation, vegetation, soil moisture, surface temperature, and humidity; to help us better understand disease! As you think about what you might like to research for the next school year, consider using NASA satellite data along with your GLOBE data to investigate various aspects of water-related and vector-borne disease. You can learn about the research conducted...

[July 17 | 05:00 p.m.| PST] We are well within the rainy season in the country and rains are part of our day. Fortunately, we were able to record 2 cloud observations today, one during solar soon and one during a satellite flyover . One curious event we observed was the rain pouring down while it appears to be still sunny .  I think in this case, cloud observation in all directions is important to fully describe the clouds in your area. Aside from that, today is Cloud Art Day here. I gave the GLOBE Cloud Chart to our young citizen scientists to study and have a...

As part of the 2020 GLOBE Virtual Meeting, our NASA Earth Science Education Collaborative team offered a July 15 webinar to highlight opportunities and resources for doing GLOBE science at home this summer and beyond. These include the 15 July- 15 August 2020 Community Cloud Challenge, as well as activities and resources that can be used by families to do science @ home. Presented by: Jessica Taylor and Marilé Colon Robles, NASA LaRC, and Theresa Schwerin and Cassie Soeffing, IGES. No worries if you missed the live webinar, following are links to the video and slides: Video...

[July 16 | 02:23 a.m. | PST] Just finished with the GLOBE Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Task Force Meeting. It was very rewarding to see all the work put together by the group presented at last to the GLOBE community. Back to the Cloud Challenge , we started things off by taking 3 cloud observations using the GLOBE Observer App . We then prepared the Cloud Activity Tracker for these youngsters who have been gamely participating in our science-related activities at home since the lock down in our country. We introduced them also to three basic clouds first (cirrus,...
