I just came across an article from NASA's Earth Observatory that was released yesterday entitled "A Dry Start to South America’s Wet Season". The article describes the current lack of precipitation in South America, and includes the map below. In this map, we are seeing the accumulated deficit of rainfall that is both flowing onto the surface and accumulating under the ground as of this...

One of NASA's scientists, Dr. Stephanie Uz, has been working closely with the GLOBE ENSO Campaign throughout its beginning. She is an oceanographer who studies the response of ocean biology to physical forcing through remotely sensed satellite data, in situ measurements, model output and statistical reconstructions using proxies. Her research focuses on variability in global ocean color or...

I came across this information this afternoon, and thought I would share it with everyone. Here are some of the impacts of the 2015-2016 El Nino's impact on some parts of Brazil and Columbia.  We would love to hear from any of you as to how the El Nino impacted you in your area! Just add a comment below.  "Brazil is undergoing its most severe drought in 35 years and heavily...


Hey there all your fabulous GLOBE Teachers and Scientists!!!! We want one slide from you- and here is the template ready to go!- to share either how you are already using collaboration as a tool or how you would like to use this tool in the future!  It is super easy- here are the directions.  What better way to show your students that they are a valuable part of the GLOBE Community...


Apparently the wind belts around the equator flip about once every two years. This past year, NASA found that the flip occurred much earlier than it expected. Watch the short video at this url to learn more about this phenomena and how it might be related to the 2015-16 El Nino event.  ...
