About research

Scientists use the data
Scientists compare the data you send with satellite data. In this way they hope to better understand the role of climate change on plants. You can help them by taking pictures and collecting GLOBE phenology data!

Be a scientist yourself
We recommend students to not only take pictures and GLOBE phenology measurements, but also start your own research.
