March/April/May 2020   What is NASA GLOBE Clouds?  Cloud observations through The GLOBE Program are led by the  NASA  GLOBE Clouds Team at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA. Every sky and cloud observation submitted through GLOBE Clouds, including through the GLOBE Observer app, is analyzed by the team to determine if it matches satellite data. If there is a match, a personalized NASA email is sent to you comparing your observations with satellites. Your observations and photographs help researchers better understand our atmosphere and how to make...

You have submitted GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper observations, but are still unsure how to access and analyze that data?  This blog outlines the steps to download data into a spreadsheet, describes the data found in each column, and discusses what to do with the two sets of latitude and longitude data associated with each observation. Download Data First you will need to download your data using GLOBE’s Advanced Data Access Tool (ADAT) . This link also has video and text tutorials to get you started. Once you open ADAT, it prompts you to select filters, which will...

As you know, April 2020 is all about trees. The NASA GLOBE Observer (NASAGO) is having the Trees Challenge 2020: Make Every Tree Count event for the entire month of April. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and the 25th anniversary of the GLOBE Program, the NASA GLOBE Observer is hosting this month-long citizen science challenge in April 2020. During this challenge, we want to get as many tree height observations from around the GLOBE using the NASAGO App Trees Tool on your mobile devices. If you haven’t downloaded the App yet, please CLICK HERE or type in NASA GLOBE...

We are asking for photographs of dust storms and dust events in cold climates  (or high latitude areas), southwest United States and Northern Mexico, and desert (or arid and semi arid) areas. Follow these steps on how to take photographs of the horizon, not the sky in the direction of the dust event. Different flyers are now available to print or share that you can use to spread the word!

In this pro tip, you will learn how to increase your location accuracy while using the GLOBE Observer app and learn why location accuracy matters. How is location determined? By using a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver, (either  hand-held or built into your mobile device), you are able to obtain your geographical position on the Earth’s surface. The antennas on your GPS receiver will acquire satellite signals and once it has located three satellites, it will perform a first calculation of latitude and longitude.  For the GLOBE Observer Land Cover tool,...

I bet you would be surprised to learn that since we began to collect " Mosquito Habitat Mappe r" data (5/29/2017), we have had over 20,915 observations submitted! Think about how significant that number is for a tool that has only been available for less than three years!  As many of us who live in the northern hemisphere begin to see signs of spring arriving- robins, crocuses, leaf buds on the trees, and warmer weather- we know that we will also see adult mosquitoes before too long. While there are over 3,500 species of mosquitoes, only about 100 of those species are actually...

Muchas experiencias señalan que la participación ciudadana es clave en el control del “Dengue” y otras enfermedades transmitidas por mosquitos, sobre todo, en un contexto donde en los últimos años se informa que los mosquitos son cada vez más resistentes a las fumigaciones que son realizadas por las instituciones de salud. El Programa GLOBE, una iniciativa de educación y ciencia ambiental promovida por la NASA y otras instituciones científicas, busca, a través del aplicativo GLOBE Observer - Mosquitos Habitat Mapper , involucrar a los ciudadanos en el combate contra los mosquitos....

The Bahamas Globe Team is actively scouting to revitalize the program. We have been visiting schools and sharing the information about Globe as well as repairing weather  enclosures that may have been damaged while seeking future locations at other schools for other ones. On the 19th and 20th of February, Globe was presented at a Junior and Senior school teacher's workshop with the view to assist in raising awareness about the program and the possibilities that lie ahead for teachers, students and the country as a whole. In other news, after an absence of over two years, ...

Enhancing undergraduate understanding of hydro-climatic studies in the environmental cohort using the GLOBE led inquiry-based learning approach. Teaching practices are context specific, thus we focus this study on enhancing the inquiry-based learning (IBL) in teacher education. The South African physical science curriculum (DBE, 2011b) supports the teaching and learning of science through inquiry and learners are expected to be involved in practical investigations. However, South African preservice teachers who join universities are not confident to implement inquiry approaches when...

The Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign has found a way for campaign-participating schools, to leverage their tree height and tree-related activities to earnsome more awesome recognition. If participating campaign members are collecting tree height data or using tree-related measurements and observations from GLOBE for student-driven research projects and citizen science efforts, member schools are already well on the way to earning Tree Campus K-12 recognition for the currentschool year. Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, the Arbor Day Foundation has a brand new...

Public middle and high schools are generally free in the U.S and that goes a long way into helping parents save money. Although it is true, there are other costs related to public education that are exponentially increasing. These costs cater to covering the necessary costs to procure textbooks and partake in extracurricular activities.  The case of rising costs of education is worse when considering the private educational institutions around this country. Some parents prefer these schools to teach their children because of the smaller classes, which makes it easier for the...

Hace unos días tuve la oportunidad de participar, invitada por el Programa GLOBE que promueve el Ministerio del Ambiente, a una feria organizada por el CONCYTEC con motivo del Día Internacional de la Mujer y la Niña en la Ciencia (11 de febrero). El evento buscaba llamar la atención sobre la necesidad de promover la participaciòn de muchas más mujeres en el campo de la ciencia, tecnología e innovación.  Estuve en el stand de GLOBE Perú, donde mostramos y experimentamos con niños y niñas, parte del trabajo de investigación GLOBE de suelos, la importancia del suelo y la...
