Water quality is a very important environmental variable that must be actively monitored. Water quality differs everywhere across the planet and is vital to human health and survival. One of the three ENSO Student Research Campaign's 'Guiding Investigative Questions' says, "What is the quality of water in our environment?" This question opens up a new level of observation, research, and action. Students from around the world are taking measurements through several GLOBE Protocol including, but not limited to: pH Alkalinity Dissolved Oxygen Water Transparency Water Temperature ...

   Today we will get a closer at look at the values displayed on our Calitoo screen. When you first turn on your Calitoo, you will get a screen like the following: note the serial number of your instrument will be displayed.                After the initial screen, your instrument will display basic information as shown on the following picture (Source: http://www.calitoo.fr/uploads/documents/en/usermanual_2016_en.pdf) TIP: The temperature displayed by your Calitoo is actually the temperature inside the instrument. When you...

As spring begins here in the northern hemisphere, we often see seasonal changes in our precipitation patterns. As most of you know, heavy rains can result in the mass movement of land- known as "landslides".  These natural hazards occur all over the world, and often result in destruction of property and even death. Scientists at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center are in the process of building an open worldwide database for landslide research- and we need you to help us out! Learn about the "Landslide Reporter" citizen science program in this blog.  Learn more about NASA's...
