Educators – Join the GLOBE Mission Mosquito (GMM) Field Measurement Campaign Webinar #9 “Using NASA Earth Observations for Mosquito-borne Disease Applications” on Tuesday, 09 July, at 2:00 p.m. ET.
Every wonder how and why NASA Earth observations might be used to predict, monitor, and respond to mosquito-transmitted disease? During this webinar, Dr. Ben Zaitchik will explain how and why he uses NASA Earth observations to conduct research on mosquito-related diseases. Participants will learn how to layer NASA data sets for their own use.

The GLOBE Mission Mosquito Campaign
The GMM goal is to create an organized citizen science community, primarily through formal education with targeted outreach to informal education, that will conduct and report local observations using the GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper App. Using the mobile app, citizen scientists identify potential breeding sites for mosquitoes, sample and count mosquito larvae, and with optional equipment, examine and photograph a specimen to identify its genus.
