The State of Trees – July 2024. Live from the 2024 GLOBE Annual Meeting: What does it mean to satellite match tree height and land cover?
Join us live from the 2024 GLOBE Annual Meeting in Fredonia, New York, U.S.A., as we present and discuss the importance of matching space-based satellite tree height and land cover data, from missions like ICESat-2, GEDI, and Landsat, to the ground-based GLOBE tree height and land cover observations.  >>

Updates on the GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO) Transition from the NASA GLOBE Program Office (GPO)
Following the announcement from GLOBE federal sponsors on the outcome of the GIO cooperative agreement competition on 17 April, 2024, GPO, UCAR GIO, the new GIO team from both the Education Development Center (EDC) and The City University of New York (CUNY), GLOBE Data and Information System (DIS), the GLOBE Observer team, and GLOBE federal co-sponsors have all been hard at work to plan and execute the GIO transition. The overarching goal of the transition activities is for the new GIO team (EDC and CUNY) to understand how various GIO functional groups have operated over the years. This ensures necessary continuity and knowledge transfer to facilitate EDC and CUNY’s planning of the programmatic support they will provide for GLOBE’s worldwide community given their vision.  >>

One Million Geostationary Satellite Comparisons
At the end of May the GLOBE Clouds team met a significant milestone. They matched 1 million GLOBE clouds observations to geostationary satellite data! You can help the team get to 2 million by downloading the GLOBE Observer app and observing the clouds near you. Learn more about the NASA GLOBE Cloud protocol and how researchers are matching GLOBE cloud observations with satellite data to create a deeper understanding of clouds.  >>
