GLOBE’s Enhanced Cloud Protocol Goes Live!
The enhanced Cloud Protocol is live! Join the NASA and GLOBE science teams as we take a new look at clouds, from the ground and from space! If you are part of the GLOBE community, you will be familiar with the process, but NEW observation and data analysis skills have been added for you to explore and master (as an optional enhancement to the work you are currently doing). You will access the Cloud Protocol Teacher Guide and Data Entry in the same ways, but each will contain (optional) NEW NASA content. Through an enhanced protocol, you will now provide additional information that scientists and GLOBE participants can use to compare with satellite data!
Explore the new resources:
- Teachers Guide Cloud Protocol – Updated teacher resources include protocol text (PDF), e-Training slides, field guides, data entry sheets, learning activities, and more.
- NASA Support Page for GLOBE Clouds and Satellite Comparison – Enhance and extend your knowledge of the Clouds Protocol with additional information about clouds, observing, and satellite matches provided by NASA Langley Research Center.
- NASA Cloud Satellite Portal – Access satellite overpass times and compare GLOBE ground observations to NASA’s satellite cloud data.
