GLOBE at Night 2012
GLOBE at Night is an international citizen-science campaign to raise public awareness of the impact of light pollution. GLOBE students and community members measure their night sky brightness and submit their observations to a website from a computer or smart phone. There will be four opportunities to participate in GLOBE at Night in 2012. The first is 14-23 January.  >>

New GLOBE Website - December 2011 Update
The first Beta testing phase of the new GLOBE website begins this week. The new website will dramatically change the way teachers, scientists and students interact with one another, enter and visualize meaningful data and learn. The initial testing process is vitally important to the eventual launch of the website because Beta testing allows the GLOBE Program Office (GPO) to hear from a small group of participants who are using the new website and its various tools––for the first time­––for feedback and input.  >>

AMS DataStreme Earth's Climate Systems Professional Development Course for K-12 Educators
The American Meteorological Society (AMS) is developing a national cadre of K-12 teachers highly trained in climate science, and familiar with climate modeling. From January – April 2012, GLOBE K-12 teachers are welcome to become trained to be a part of this elite climate science group. This is a great opportunity to explore the fundamentals of climate science and to earn three (3) graduate credits free-of-charge while doing so.  >>

Great Global Investigation of Climate - December IOP
The second Great Global Investigation of Climate (GGIC) Intensive Observing Period (IOP) will take place 1 – 31 December 2011. Here's how it works: students will collect and enter temperature and precipitation data in the GLOBE database and investigate how to classify local weather and climate using this atmospheric data. If you participated in the September IOP, you are encouraged to contribute in December. For those who are new to the GGIC, now is the best time get involved.  >>

GLOBE Climate and Land Cover Project Webinar
The next Climate and Land Cover Project Intensive Observing Period will take place from 1 – 31 January 2012. A great way to prepare for this event is to participate in the NOAA/NSTA Webinar: Exploring with Students the Connections between a Changing Land Cover and Climate. In this webinar, you will learn about the efforts climate scientists are using to improve land cover classifications for climate models. Participants will also receive an overview of what changes are occurring in global land cover and land use as well as their causes. Additionally, you will also understand how land cover relates to the global carbon cycle.  >>
