Observer Science Blogs
Head on over to the Observer website to read the latest science blogs from our science leads and guests from the scientific community.
- "Five Years of ICESat-2, GLOBE Trees, and the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign" by Trees Science Lead Brian Campbell (NASA Wallops)
- "An Astronomical Atmospheric Experiment: A Backyard Astronomer's Guide to Experiencing a Solar Eclipse" by J. Brant Dodson (NASA Langley)
The GLOBE Observer team was also fortunate this past summer to have two interns working on projects related to satellite matching. One of the projects was to help lay the groundwork for adding the capability for satellite comparisons for land cover data, similar to what is available for clouds observations. The second project focused on making the existing cloud satellite matches more easily accessible to users through improvements to the My Observations page. You can watch a video presentation of the interns explaining their project themselves, here.
