To draw statistically valid conclusions about ecological trends, such as the relationship between land cover and mosquito population dynamics, land areas of interest must be sampled in a consistent manner. Numerous ground observations of local areas can help scientists gain insight of the landscape, especially in regions where remote sensing techniques fail to measure certain land characteristics. However, sending scientists to sample areas across the globe is not always viable. That’s why tools like GLOBE Observer App are so helpful. By recruiting citizen volunteers to conduct ground...

Coming into the NASA SEES Mosquito Mapper program, I was beyond nervous. Living in Washington State in an area with few mosquitoes, I had no idea how I would be able to collect enough data for the final research project, especially since this was the first time I was conducting research on my own. In addition to that, the program was entirely virtual! As a visual learner, I was worried that participation might be challenging. These worries quickly fell behind after the first virtual "Zoom" meeting. My mentors were super easy going and accessible, and happy to answer any of the questions...

Through the SEES Mosquito Mappers internship, I have learned how to skeptically interrogate the world around us and devise profound questions that can shape our understanding of the natural universe. I came to this internship knowing very little about science except for  the basics of the scientific method and the “facts” that we are mandated to memorize in our educational system. I started by doing engaging activities and watching webinars hosted by NASA scientists. I supplemented the knowledge that I gained with educational SEES modules on topics from “Climate Science...

First - congratulations to Dr. David Padgett from Tennessee State University! See below for links to the YES Medal award and details! Catching up around here with the busy summer! Many Partners and teachers had the opportunity to attend the GLOBE Annual Meeting this year since it was virtual. Click on the link and you can view any presentations you missed. The student reports were amazing and the web team announced some new features coming our way soon! Don't miss the DEI Task Force session too! In other summer news: Dr. David Padgett, Tennessee State University Partner...

Did you know that NASA satellite data is being used to predict,monitor, and respond to vector-borne and water-related disease around the world? Imagine the value of using both GLOBE ground-based data; such as precipitation, vegetation, soil moisture, surface temperature, and humidity; to help us better understand disease! As you think about what you might like to research for the next school year, consider using NASA satellite data along with your GLOBE data to investigate various aspects of water-related and vector-borne disease. You can learn about the research conducted...
