As you know, there are so many online tools that you can analyze, visualize, and retrieve data and imagery for student and professional research. Our campaign team knows that it can be tough to know just which one(s) to choose to assist in research. Online tools can be used as aides in student research from local to global environments. Comparing ground-based data and imagery, from GLOBE with satellite and airborne data, can serve as an amazing way to focus student research. We also know that teachers and students are extremely busy right now, especially in the global pandemic-driven new...

    The aim of this competition was to spread the importance of protecting the environment and raising awareness of the causes of environmental pollution. Participants had a good idea of the contribution that is provided by the Globe program, students were give some online workshops that explain the methods of collecting environmental data in a fun scientific way. More then 70 students participated in this competition during the summer break. The winners were rewarded with medals and participation certificates ...

The Next 25 Years “ To Observe the Earth and Visualize the Future ” GLOBE Satellites in Education Team (G-SET) Over five decades of satellite and remote sensing data and technical infrastructure focused on observing the Earth continues to provide critical data and information for decision-makers daily. In fact, it plays a role in many of our daily lives and business practices. Precollege students can now utilize the Space to Earth: Earth to Space (SEES) Model where observations and measurements can include both satellite and remote sensing imagery and data,...

  They are all tropical cyclones, but the name hurricane is used exclusively for those in the North Atlantic and the Pacific Northwest. How do they form and why do they usually occur in this part of the world? A power pump The most common mechanism of hurricane formation in the Atlantic - which causes more than 60% of these phenomena - is a tropical wave. When it reaches the Atlantic Ocean, the tropical wave may be the beginning of a hurricane, but in order for it to form, it needs energy sources, such as adequate humidity, heat and wind. In particular, it is...

The current COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the way students learn, as many students around the world are engaging in hybrid models of instruction, a combination of classroom and at home (virtual) learning. We understand that this does play a vital role in how students participate in GLOBE data collection and student research. With all this said, beginning in September 2020, Year 3 of the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign will commence. With participants from over fifty countries, the campaign includes students, educators, citizen scientists, subject matter experts,...

The NASA GLOBE Clouds team never imagined this time last year that we'd be holding our GLOBE 2020 Community Cloud Challenge in the midst of a global pandemic. But GLOBE is about community and showing how science is better together! In the four weeks of the challenge, we had the opportunity to learn how eight different NASA scientists study clouds to better understand our atmosphere and the important role citizen science observations play in that. You also had the chance to learn about cloud-related activities from six different amazing GLOBE educators.   And...
