The Globe Program

Type: 
Climate Education
Organization: 
Globe Observer
Description: 

GLOBE Observer is an international network of citizen scientists and scientists working together to learn more about our shared environment and changing climate. The GLOBE Observer Program currently accepts observations of Clouds and Mosquito Habitats, with planned expansion to other types of data in the future. The cloud observations help NASA scientists understand clouds from below (the ground) and above (from space). Clouds play an important role in transferring energy from the Sun to different parts of the Earth system. Since clouds can change rapidly, scientists need frequent observations from citizen scientists.
