Bill Smith, left, along with Kris Bedka. The NASA GLOBE Clouds team is excited to share with you this recent news article about two NASA scientists that help match your observations with satellite data - Bill Smith and Kris Bedka. They, along with Louis Nguyen lead SatCORPS, at team at NASA Langley Research Center that use expertise in clouds to make better weather predictions.

As spring begins here in the northern hemisphere, we often see seasonal changes in our precipitation patterns. As most of you know, heavy rains can result in the mass movement of land- known as "landslides". These natural hazards occur all over the world, and often result in destruction of property and even death. Scientists at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center are in the process of building an open worldwide database for landslide research- and we need you to help us out!

We are excited to have such a response to the NASA GLOBE Clouds: Spring Cloud Observations Data Challenge . Remember, top observers will be congratulated by a NASA scientist! Click here to learn more about the challenge. Are you wondering about the clouds you are reporting and the type of weather you might experience in your area? Here is a guide to how cloud types are related to weather! The information below was taken from the NOAA's SciJinks webpage - https://scijinks.gov/clouds/

Las nubes, son diminutas gotas de agua líquida en suspensión, o heladas si se encuentran a suficiente altura. Estas pequeñas gotas se mantienen en el aire debido a su pequeño tamaño, que oscila entre 0,2 y 0,3 mm de diámetro. Sólo caen en forma de precipitación cuando llegan a medir entre 1 y 5 milímetros. Su color blanco característico se debe a que la luz del Sol que incide en estas gotitas, las cuales reflejan los colores visibles que conforman la luz , quedando así la mezcla de todos ellos, es decir, el blanco.
It’s almost spring, the time of year when the looming change in seasons could lead to some pretty fascinating cloud activity in the sky. NASA and the GLOBE Program are asking for your help by taking part in a citizen science cloud observation challenge. From March 15 through April 15, citizen scientists of all ages can make up to 10 cloud observations per day using the GLOBE Observer app or one of the other data entry options (for trained GLOBE members). Challenge participants with the most observations will be congratulated by a NASA scientist in a...
