GLOBE students, you can become part of the exciting NASA/GLOBE ENSO Student Research Campaign today!

El Niño and La Niña are important climatic phenomenon that can have impacts on the climate globally causing flooding and droughts as well as causing changes in seasonal weather. These interactions around the world are called teleconnections. Considering the importance of this issue, a GLOBE ENSO (El Niño Southern Oscillation) Campaign has been formulated to engage students in determining where and how much El Niño affects local places and to put students in contact with their local environment.

In order to officially participate, you must:

  1. take measurements and submit data, to GLOBE, in at least two of the six campaign protocols for at least 21 days per season; AND
  2. register as a member of the ENSO Student Research Campaign.

Register as a member today! (Be sure to log in to your GLOBE account to ensure you see the "join-community" link when you go to the Members Page.) As a member, students will get updates when new blogs are posted. As an added benefit, the NASA GLOBE team will award certificates to the members and schools that attend at least 50 percent of the ENSO Student Research Campaign webinars during the 2016-2017 school year.

Throughout the campaign, regular guest blogs will be posted. In addition, there is information on the science of ENSO and how to participate in the campaign and engage in discussion opportunities, as well as vital analysis tools and numerous resources on the webpage. Keep checking back to discover what’s new with Phase II of the campaign! (También chequea: Como Participar en Español y Como Participar en Português.)
