Sponsored by NASA, GLOBE Observer is an international network of citizen scientists and scientists working together to learn more about our shared environment and changing climate. To participate, you and your students can download the GLOBE Observer app and submit regular observations. GLOBE Observer currently accepts observations of Clouds, Mosquito Habitats, Land Cover and Trees with planned expansion to other types of data in the future.
The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program is an international science and education program that provides students worldwide with the opportunity to participate in data collection and the scientific process. It provides grade level-appropriate, interdisciplinary activities and investigations about the atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and soil/pedosphere, developed by the scientific community and validated by teachers. Their goal is to connect students, teachers, scientists, and citizens from different parts of the world to conduct real, hands-on science about their local environment and to put this in a global perspective.
