  Hoy quiero compartir con todos acerca del trabajo de mi compañero del equipo de diversidad, equidad, e inclusión de GLOBE, Juan Felipe Restrepo, quien me contó todo lo referente a un evento que él ayudó a organizar y que hizo destacar a un grupo de niñas y mujeres científicas. El panel "Mujeres y Alas" se realizó el viernes 13 de noviembre de 2020, en el marco del VII Festival de las Aves Migratorias de Caribe Colombiano. Este evento fue coordinado y liderado por el Colegio Montessori de Cartagena que a su vez es es Coordinador del Festival junto la Asociación Calidris y la ...

Today I want to share about the amazing work by a fellow GLOBE’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task member! My friend Juan Felipe Restrepo shared with me about a special event he helped organized that showcased the great work of several female scientists! The panel “Women and Wings” took place in November 2020, as part of the VII Festival of Migratory Birds of the Colombian Caribbean. This event was coordinated and led by Colegio Montessori de Cartagena, which is also the coordinator of the festival in conjunction with Asociación Calidris and Fundación Serena del Mar. The panel’s ...

Each cloud observation submitted using the GLOBE Observer app or through The GLOBE Program is compared to data from multiple satellites. A satellite match is when satellite data is identified that corresponds to a cloud observation. For orbiting satellites the observation must be within 15 minutes before or after a satellite’s overpass. Geostationary satellites, like the GOES satellites, are always observing the same location. If you are in the United States, you are likely  to get a satellite match to a GOES satellite. These satellites are sending data every 15 minutes. As long ...

The University of New Hampshire Carbon Cycle team has started to curate a list of resources that compliment GLOBE Carbon Cycle activities and Protocols . These include videos, websites, peer reviewed articles, and a Q&A section with Dr. Scott Ollinger , ecosystem ecologist at UNH and PI on the Carbon Cycle Project. These resources have been sent to us over the past few years, and have found a home here:  https://www.globe.gov/web/leitzel-center/home/carbon-cycle-resources .  As we encounter more, we will continue to build this list. If you have resources that ...

The NASA GLOBE Clouds team at NASA Langley Research Center is working with NASA scientist Dr. Bill Smith to use GLOBE Cloud observations made by people just like you to solve the Terminator Problem! Wait, what? Well, the Solar Terminator or twilight zone is that line that separates the daylit side of a planet from the dark night side. The image on the left is an example. It was taken from the International Space Station as it crossed the terminator on April 17, 2019 as it orbits 254 miles above the Gulf of Guinea on Africa’s mid-western coast.      ...

Have you ever seen a tree snap due to high winds or a lightning strike?  Back in March 2020, I saw a beautiful Bradford Pear tree starting to bloom with its pale yellow-white blossoms. I thought that this would be a very nice, isolated tree to take a NASA GLOBE Observer tree height observation. Tree Height -  March 15, 2020, 19.41m, Bradford Pear, Salisbury, Maryland USA Let's fast forward to August 4, 2020. At this time, the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States was being greatly affected by the remnants of Hurricane Isaias. By this time, the hurricane was ...

Our universe may be filled with unseen giants. Astronomers have discovered two giant radio galaxies, which are some of the largest-known objects in the universe. This revelation suggests that the enormous galaxies may be more common than previously believed. The study published Monday in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. Astronomers found the two galaxies in new radio maps that were created using the MeerKAT radio telescope in South Africa. Radio galaxies, which can be quite common, are brightest in radio wavelengths of light. Centaurus A ...

Para mi primer post del 2021, quiero compartir acerca del increíble trabajo de nuestro amigo Mike Jabot y sus colegas. Conversé con Mike hace un par de semanas, y me enteré de que él ha participado en un proyecto colaborativo entre la Nación Séneca y USDA Northeast Climate Hub. El proyecto se llama “Conectando a la juventud a el agua cambiante”. A través de este proyecto, los jóvenes han participado en oportunidades de aprendizaje a la vez que ayudan a una granja a reintroducir cultivos nativos conocidos como las “tres hermanas” (maíz, frijoles, y calabaza). Los jóvenes aprendieron a ...

For my first post in 2021, I want to share about the amazing work performed by our friend Mike Jabot and his colleagues. I conversed with Mike a couple weeks ago, and I learned that he participated in a joint project between the Seneca Nation and the USDA Northeast Climate Hub called, “Connecting Youth to the Changing Water”. Through this project, the youth were engaged in learning opportunities while helping the farm reintroduce native crops known as the “three sisters” (corn, beans, and squash). The youth learned about planting, harvesting, and storing the crops. While working on their ...

In May 2020, citizen scientist  Carmen Mandel  met two major milestones: she marked her one-year anniversary of being a GLOBE Observer and she single-handedly expanded the  Clouds satellite match  data by 36%. Carmen uses GLOBE Observer to record clouds 2-3 times daily every time she gets a notification that a NASA satellite is overhead. She sends her data to GLOBE, but then she records her observation in her own clouds journal. When she receives an email from NASA Langley Research Center matching her observation to satellite data, she adds that to her journal as ...

Definitivamente este ha sido un año complicado; sin embargo, también pasaron cosas muy buenas. Me siento agradecida por la oportunidad de unirme a un grupo de gente súper trabajadora, creativa y apasionada de alrededor del mundo. He aprendido mucho de mis compañeros del equipo de diversidad, equidad e inclusión de GLOBE durante este año, y estoy emocionada de continuar nuestro trayecto, trabajando juntos para ayudar a que GLOBE sea una comunidad más acogedora cada día. Más que verlos como colegas, ¡considero a cada miembro de el equipo de GLOBE DEI como parte de mi familia! Este ...
