On June 4-7, 2018, I participated in the Annual Country Representative meeting and Strategic Planning for Sustainability and Participation workshop in Lome, Togo.

The Liberia office will be conducting 6 GLOBE Observers Apps and Mosquito/Zika Virus training Workshop soon. Participants will be selected from Public Health Workers, Scientists, teachers and Community Leaders in...
Did you know that NASA is closely using satellites to monitor trees around the world. There is so much trees can tell us, from Earth's biomass to area of mass tree blight to where our forests are healthy and flourishing.

By looking at forest patterns and sparse and open canopy forests, what is happening to the trees can help us monitor change on a warming planet.
On September 12, 2018, NASA will...

In my email clean-out, I found this little gem that I thought I'd share.
In 2012, the GLOBE Annual Meeting in St. Paul, Minnesota included two investigation questions for fieldwork. To answer the questions, the participants used several protocols to collect and...
