Have you been keeping up with the NASA GLOBE Clouds Team blogs? Check out two recent Community Blogs, written by Marilé Colón Robles (lead for the GLOBE Clouds Team at NASA's Langley Research Center):
- “Capturing Unique Cloud or Sky Observations” (16 March). “The NASA GLOBE Clouds team is continuously working with scientists around the world finding ways that cloud observations from citizen scientists impact the most,” Robles said in the blog. “As we find new ways of using the data, we want to remind you how important each part of your cloud report is to the scientific community. All cloud observations can help with big questions such as the link between clouds and climate.” To read the blog, click here.
- “Women Citizen Scientists Making History in the Arctic” (22 March). “The NASA GLOBE Clouds team highlights cloud observers Hilde Fålun Strøm (Norway) and Sunniva Sorby (Canada), who created “Hearts In The Ice” to call attention to all the rapid changes occurring in the polar regions due to the changing climate. These citizen scientists made history last year by being the first women to overwinter solo in the high Arctic,” Robles said in the blog. “They spent 12 consecutive months without running water or electricity at a remote trappers’ cabin called “Bamsebu” in Svalbard, Norway. While they were there, they made numerous GLOBE cloud observations as well as collecting data for many other citizen science observations including recording and observing polar bears, collecting phytoplankton samples for Fjord Phyto polar citizen science project, and observing auroras through NASA citizen science’s Aurorasaurus project, to name a few.” To read the blog, click here.
