The Hook - CloudSat

The Hook: Benefits of the CloudSat - GLOBE Partnership


CloudSat satellite

Through participating in CloudSat Education Network (CEN), GLOBE students learn how a NASA mission and satellite observations can improve our knowledge of the Earth's energy and water budget.

CloudSat's education goal is to inspire and motivate students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics by supporting improvements in Earth science education using CloudSat results. Through the NASA-sponsored GLOBE Program, students can collect and enter data that will be compared to CloudSat measurements. CloudSat also seeks to contribute Earth science learning opportunities to lifelong learners. We seek to share the results of CloudSats scientific research mission to improve our understanding of clouds and global climate change with and expand the base of scientifically literate citizens.
