GLOBE’s Cloud Protocol Gets an Update in January 2017 – Stay Tuned!
The GLOBE Cloud Protocol is getting an update in January of 2017!
With a new year comes new capabilities for satellite matching. NASA, in collaboration with The GLOBE Program, is enhancing the Cloud Protocol with updated data fields to build a robust data set and to help scientists around the world better understand the role of clouds in our Earth’s system.
The GLOBE Program is most excited about the newest feature of the updated protocol: SATELLITE DATA COMPARISON! As a GLOBE participant, you will have access to NASA satellite data at your fingertips. A team from the NASA Langley Research Center will align your ground observations with data from satellite instruments and then send the matched data right to you for comparison.
The update will be released in January 2017, and we cannot wait to bring you this authentic science experience and direct connection to NASA missions. Until then, happy observing!
