January: Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign Intensive Observation Period – Focus on Land Cover
Event Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign is hosting an Intensive Observation Period (IOP) throughout the month of January. The focus of this IOP is on land cover.
IOPs are focused periods of time where participants are encouraged to collect large amounts of data and enter it in the GLOBE database. Data that is collected during an IOP will provide other GLOBE students, scientists, researchers, and educators large amounts of concentrated data over a short period of time. This can also be referred to as "Data Density." Ground-based data density can serve as way to help validate data coming from satellites and airborne instruments.
Each IOP participant will receive a Virtual Land Cover IOP Badge. The GLOBE school with the most collected land cover data and additional protocol data will receive a virtual one-on-one Q&A session with a NASA scientist, researcher, or engineer; and a Virtual Land Cover IOP Winner Badge. The major goal here is to have students compare their measurements seasonally and with other GLOBE school measurements from around the world.
