septiembre/octubre/noviembre 2020 Nuevos recursos disponibles Gracias a nuestra comunidad de nubes, el reto comunitario de nubes 2020 fue un gran éxito al mostrar cómo la ciencia es mejor juntos. Recibimos excelentes fotografías y obras de artes de los participantes, algunas de las cuales se destacaron en el  video de agradecimiento. Si no pudistes participar del reto o quieres seguir trabajando en él, visita la página de la  guía para familias de nubes  GLOBE para obtener los recursos. Encontrarás vídeos sobre la ciencias de nubes (inglés) y...

Did you know that very soon, a new Earth-observing satellite will join the fleet of satellites that are monitoring the health of our home planet? The launch of the joint U.S.- European Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite is set for November 10! Right now it is undergoing final testing at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, and will be sent aloft on a Falcon 9 rocket. Once it is in orbit, about 1,336 km/830 miles above Earth's surface, its task will be to collect sea level measurements with an accuracy of a few centimeters (for a single measurement) for more...

September/October/November 2020   Cloud Challenge Resources Available Thanks to our cloud community, the 2020 Community Cloud Challenge was a great success showing how Science is Better Together! We received some great photos and artwork from participants, some of which were highlighted in the  thank you video . If you missed the challenge or want to keep working on it, visit the  GLOBE Clouds Family Guide  page for the resources. You will find videos about the  Science of Clouds  and the  Family Cloud Challenge  page with a Choice...

The NASA GLOBE Clouds team never imagined this time last year that we'd be holding our GLOBE 2020 Community Cloud Challenge in the midst of a global pandemic. But GLOBE is about community and showing how science is better together! In the four weeks of the challenge, we had the opportunity to learn how eight different NASA scientists study clouds to better understand our atmosphere and the important role citizen science observations play in that. You also had the chance to learn about cloud-related activities from six different amazing GLOBE educators.   And...

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...
