Today (29 May) GLOBE Mission Mosquito Citizen Science Webinar #5: “Mosquitoes on the Landscape”
Citizen Scientists – Join the GLOBE Mission Mosquito (GMM) Field Measurement Campaign webinar ”Mosquitoes on the Landscape” on Wednesday, 29 May, at 2:00 p.m. ET (7:00 p.m. UTC).
There are many factors that help people understand where mosquitoes breed. Land cover is one of them. During this webinar, Peder Nelson, Lead Scientist for the GLOBE Observer Land Cover tool, will show participants why collecting both mosquito data and land cover data using the GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper App provides important data for scientific analysis. This webinar will help participants prepare for this summer's GO on a Trail citizen science campaign, which is launching 01 June.

The GLOBE Mission Mosquito Campaign
The goal of GLOBE Mission Mosquito is to create an organized citizen science community that will conduct and report local observations using the GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper App. Using the mobile app, citizen scientists of all ages (including K-12 students) will identify potential breeding sites for mosquitoes, sample and count mosquito larvae, and (with optional equipment), examine and photograph a specimen to identify its genus.
