We’ve discussed how the mosquito story is a climate story and a human story, looking at climate history and human history. Contemporary climate change is now playing a role in the expansion of vector borne disease- not only in space but also in time. How many days are mosquitoes active in your city? You can find out by using this Disease Danger Day tool:  http://www.climatecentral.org/news/us-faces-a-rise-in-mosquito-disease-danger-days-21903. I live in Colorado, so I selected Denver, and found out that since 1970 there are now 10 more days a year on average when mosquitoes are...

It is the middle of winter here in Maryland, and it is cold!  We had a lot of snow last week, and are expecting more precipitation later this week.  Even though I know we have no active mosquitoes outside, I am still using the GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper.  If you are also living somewhere where mosquitoes aren't currently active, we hope you will consider collecting data as well, so you will be prepared when active mosquito season arrives.   Wondering what kind of data you can collect when there are no active mosquitoes?  Great question!  There...

WE NEED YOUR TREE HEIGHT DATA: TAKING MEASUREMENTS IS SUPER EASY! During each IOP, GLOBE students will: Take measurements of tree height and one additional protocol, from the suite of campaign protocols found at https://www.globe.gov/web/trees-around-the-globe/overview/start-taking-measurements,   take measurements at least three times per week for one month at the same study site for both protocols. The tree height measurements should be of the same trees each time for each site. You can have multiple sites, thus increasing the number of trees measured. Even though...

Hello, there! My name is Deborah and I am the librarian at the Linda Vista branch of the Pasadena Public Library. I am very excited to introduce the Linda Vista Science Club* where will be exploring the Linda Vista neighborhood in the City of Pasadena, California. We are one of three science clubs within the Pasadena Public Library that are partnering with the Los Angeles Public Library to provide its citizens with opportunities to engage in citizen science. In the next five months, we will be exploring a variety of topics including: Clouds, Surface Temperature, Tree Height,...

The NASA GLOBE Clouds team is looking for members of the GLOBE International STEM Network (GISN) or any researcher that would be interested in publishing research (as lead or co-author) using the GLOBE Clouds data.  We are looking for researchers that are interested in: Cryosphere that would be willing to use cloud observations over the Arctic/Antarctica. Satellite validation studies with collocated observations, particularly those collected during GLOBE Clouds Data Challenge (March 15-April 15, 2018). Natural hazards to explore possibilities of using the...
