GLOBE/SMAP 02 February Webinar Recording Available for Viewing – One Year of SMAP!

In case you missed the Webinar on 02 February, you can now view it! The webinar provided an update from Dr. Erika Podest, SMAP scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory about what the SMAP satellite has measured in 1 year of spaceflight. There were also two guest teacher speakers, Vicky Gorman from the Medford Memorial Middle School in New Jersey and Marina Barišić from III Osnovna Skola Varazdin in Croatia. The webinar provided an excellent overview of how students are taking the SMAP soil moisture measurements and how they are excited to do real science.

Mark your calendars for the next webinar, which will be held on 01 March 2016 (11 a.m. ET/4 p.m. UTC), entitled: “Heading into the Spring Thaw and Global Shout-Outs to all the GLOBE Schools/Teams Collecting SMAP Soil Moisture Data."
