GLOBE Side Navigation

Xpedition of GLOBE Scientists, Alumni & Students

A student research Xpedition to Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, Africa

Our Xpedition Team of Students, Educators and Scientists will travel to Tanzania, Africa to Climb the largest freestanding mountain in the world to gather environmental data within the distinct biomes of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Along the way we hope to use GLOBE protocols to better identify the six unique biomes on the mountain.

This GLOBE Seasons and Biomes Project endeavor will contribute scientific measurements to compare with previous research and serve as a comparative baseline for future study areas to examine the effects of climate change that threaten the entire ecosystem of this World Natural Heritage Site.
