El paso del huracán Beryl, por el Caribe,  no solo ha afectado Islas al norte del continente,  también afectó a Venezuela,  desde ahí hasta Colombia y parte de Brasil, por impacto indirecto, registrado por los satélites del Goes 16-  Este,  en sus diferentes bandas,  con notables lluvias e inundaciones. Día 05-07-2024 , no cabe duda que Beryl plantea serios interrogantes,  en la física de la atmósfera de la tierra, en la época actual, desde cambios significativos en la gravedad de la tierra, que pueda estar afectando la presión atmosférica por zonas, ...

For the past three years, the GLOBE Mission Earth (GME) Team at the University of Toledo, Ohio has been teaching and mentoring NASA-SEES high school students across the United States in the study of the Urban Heat Island Effect (UHIE) and Air Quality. In 2023, the NASA-SEES High School Virtual Internship Program had 20 interns for both the UHIE and Air Quality Groups. During the 6-week virtual training, interns conducted research on the topics of their choice and met virtually three times a week to complete their projects. They also completed weekly assignments. For the UHIE ...

August 9-11, 2023, Tina Harte Ballinger and Amy Ellisor of the GLOBE Goes to Camp team piloted a GLOBE STEM Camp at Hero Kids Foundation in Suffolk, VA assisted by Isaac Lee the Program Director of Hero Kids. Over 25 campers and 6 YMCA staff from the Armed Services YMCA in Virginia Beach, VA. joined in collecting of cloud, surface temperature, soil, and tree height data through the lens of "Environmental Stewardship". Campers loved the hikes through the forest and were amazed at the differences in the characterization of the soil in the forest as compared to that of an open meadow. The ...

One of the things that I find the most inspiring about The GLOBE Program , is the rich collaboration that it enables us to have with each other. Speaking for myself, I now have friends literally all around the globe, because of my engagement and interaction with GLOBE. I thought I would take a little time to write about a very inspiring intergenerational collaboration that I have found particularly enriching.   During the virtual GLOBE Annual Meeting in 2021, I was asked by a participant if we could meet up in a virtual room and chat. I was astonished to meet the extremely vibrant ...

Prof. Cristian Randieri is a great proactive person and an effective communicator and a visionary. His knowledge is not restricted to the area he covers, but his impressive passion for all the technical topics led him to acquire great skills even in areas far from his original studies. He is a valuable writer with a great scientific background formed with more than 15 years of active research on experimental Nuclear Physics performed in the most famous international research laboratories such as CERN, ESRF, INFN. He writes about HI-Tech solutions topics and advanced research studies ...

One of the best things about GLOBE is that students learn about science by doing science! Not only do students engage in real data collection, but there are also opportunities for them to conduct research projects that are interesting to them and that focus on answering questions that are meaningful and relevant to them. This semester we were very fortunate to collaborate with a high school intern who feels very passionate about advocating for accessibility, and who has also been learning a lot about clouds! Naudia’s research question was “How can blind and sighted students learn about ...

Have you ever wondered why NASA has chosen to follow water ? NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has captured the distinct signature of water outside our solar system. NASA's Artemis program is examining the presence of water on the Moon in advance of sending and establishing a sustainable human presence there.  The answer is simple - water is key to life as we know it, including on planet Earth. Only 2.5% of the water on Earth is fresh, and only a tiny fraction of that is available for use. NASA and other space agencies’ remote sensing satellites provide vital information to ...

The Summer 2022 NASA SEES Internship program was a memorable one for the GLOBE Mission EARTH (GME) Team! The 6-week period of hard work, commitment, and dedication by all members led to creative and outstanding research projects from both the Urban Heat Island Effect (UHIE) and the Air Quality Initiative (AQI) Teams. The wide geographical spread of the NASA SEES students allows them to take observations using different GLOBE protocols across the United States. The AQI Team led by GLOBE Mission EARTH Research Assistant Sara Mierzwiak and GME Teacher Janene Smith mentored a group of 7 ...
