I am so excited! This Thursday April 15 at 10am MT/12pm ET, the GLOBE program will celebrate National American Sign Language (ASL) Day! My friend Jillian Anderson and her students will give us a brief intro to ASL. They will also teach us how to sign some of the terms we use in GLOBE in ASL! I first met Jillian in 2018 when I was a GLOBE Air Quality intern at NASA Langley, under the mentorship of Dr. Margaret Pippin. I asked Margaret if I could invite the Lexington School for the Deaf to participate in the US GLOBE Air Quality Student Research Campaign. Margaret said "yes" instantly. I ...

The asteroid impact that killed off the dinosaurs gave birth to our planet's tropical rainforests, a study suggests. Researchers used fossil pollen and leaves from Colombia to investigate how the impact changed South American tropical forests. After the 12km-wide space rock struck Earth 66 million years ago, the type of vegetation that made up these forests changed drastically. The team has outlined its findings in the prestigious journal Science. Our team examined over 50,000 fossil pollen records and more than 6,000 leaf fossils from before and after the impact. They found that ...
Rahil V. is a high school student from Maryland. He was part of the 2020 STEM Enhancement in the Earth Sciences Mosquito Habitat Mapper summer research intern cohort. This past summer I attended the SEES Virtual Mosquito Mappers Internship, changing my life. I suppose "life-changing" is often used arbitrarily to describe a great experience, but I can assure you, I do mean life-changing. I entered the summer wary of a virtual internship; after all, how useful could zoom calls and a virtual classroom be? Within the first week, I was blown away by the competent mentors, resources, and ...
Two projects have adopted the GO Mosquito Habitat Mapper tool as a way to obtain data for scientific analysis. The GLOBE Mission Mosquito Campaign plays an official role in a research project funded by the National Science Foundation: Citizen Epidemiology: Designing and Connecting Next-Generation Cyber, Biological, and Citizen Science Systems for the Surveillance and Control of Mosquito-Borne Diseases . The project PI is Dr. Ryan Carney, University of South Florida. To create an automated larva identification using artificial intelligence, many images of mosquito larvae are needed- from ...
U Prirodoslovno – grafičkoj školi obilježili smo, u sklopu GLOBE programa, Svjetski meteorološki dan. Prije 71 godinu 23.3. osnovana je Svjetska meteorološka organizacija pa se tog dana obilježava Svjetski dan meteorologije. Učenici naše škole, smjer Kemijski tehničar, koji su uključeni u GLOBE program, istražili su što je meteorologija. Odradili su i radionicu upoznavanja osnovnih oblika oblaka i njihova prepoznavanja te su na mjernom mjestu za promatranje oblaka, ponovili kako se promatra nebo i određuje pokrivenost neba oblacima. Osim toga, učenici su izradili sunčane satove, ...
Every time you take a cloud observation, the NASA GLOBE Clouds team matches your observation to satellite data. Why do we do this? Your view of clouds is from a different perspective than what is observed from a satellite. Satellites look down at clouds and see the top. When you make your observation, you are looking up towards the sky and seeing the bottom of the clouds. When there is a match, scientists then have a top-down view of clouds from a satellite and a bottom-up view from your spot. When you mix these two views together, you have a more complete picture of the sky. ...

The NASA GLOBE Clouds team highlights cloud observers Hilde Fålun Strøm (Norway) and Sunniva Sorby (Canada), who created Hearts In The Ice to call attention to all the rapid changes occurring in the polar regions due to the changing climate. These citizen scientists made history last year by being the first women to overwinter solo in the high Arctic. They spent 12 consecutive months without running water or electricity at a remote trappers cabin called “Bamsebu” in Svalbard, Norway. While they were there, they made numerous GLOBE cloud observations as ...

The NASA GLOBE Clouds team is continuously working with scientists around the world finding ways that cloud observations from citizen scientists impact the most. As we find new ways of using the data, we want to remind you how important each part of your cloud report is to the scientific community. All cloud observations can help with big questions such as the link between clouds and climate. Dr. Patrick Taylor is an atmospheric scientist at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia. In the Clouds and Earth’s Climate video , Patrick discusses how he studies clouds to ...

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 ...
