Greetings from NASA and the GLOBE ENSO Student Research Campaign! As you know, as part of Phase III: Water in Our Environment, we have been having data collection events each month that focus on Short Observation & Data Analysis (SODA). Following these data collection events, students and teachers are welcome to present at SODA webinar. So far, we have had SODA presentations from Croatia and the United States.  Check out our ENSO Phase III webinar page. As a refresher on how the SODA webinars work: Introduction of featured teacher, students and school (2 minutes) Presentation...
