The GLOBE Program, through its various platforms such as the International Virtual Student Symposium (IVSS), Student Research Symposium (SRS), Regional Meetings has always highlighted relevant student research accomplishments and outputs. The GLOBE activities, however, are not just limited to students and teachers. We are pleased to know that retired professionals can also work and contribute meaningfully to the GLOBE database as citizen scientists. Let us get to know one cloud enthusiast from India, Om Prakash Gupta. Om Prakash Gupta is one of the most active citizen scientists that ...

                                           My involvement in the Stem Enhancement in Earth Science (SEES) program started sometime around early spring 2021. The involvement was preceded by a strong recommendation from Dr. Kevin Czajkowski, PI, GLOBE Mission Earth, The University of Toledo. Indeed, to me as a member of the GLOBE International STEM Network (GISN), my participation in SEES became an opportunity to invoke the GISN mandate which includes to mentor and inspiring ...

This year, the GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS)’s topic is focused on Engineering Solutions for a Changing Climate . I believe it may be a bit overwhelming to think of such a big topic, wondering where to even start brainstorming solutions regarding our changing climate. But my colleague and friend Juan Felipe Restrepo just reminded me that when doing research, we don’t need to start from scratch! We can build on the knowledge that has been gathered by those who have studied a topic before us. I happen to be extremely lucky when it comes to looking for people ...

I find it hard to believe it’s been two years since GLOBE invited the community to apply to become part of a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Task Force! One of the most important recommendations made by the Task Force was the development and implementation of a DEI assessment survey that helped set up a baseline: we needed to become informed about the state of DEI across GLOBE, and we needed to hear from GLOBE community’s members about necessary resources to make GLOBE more diverse, equitable, and inclusive. To work on the assessment survey, a special committee assembled from ...
