As always, GLOBE continues to work to ensure that your “use” of the website, and associated apps, is as user-friendly as possible. In late January 2021, Phase 1 of the Data Entry app merger into GLOBE Observer will take place.

New Year’s Message to the GLOBE Community from GIO Director Dr. Tony Murphy

And, while we crave the days ahead when friends can gather together, work together, make plans together, we should remember what we have learned during this period of isolation, alone and apart.  >>
