NASA GLOBE Observer’s Weekly Roundup: September 2-8 2018
Happy Anniversary to Us! It's been two years and in this week's roundup we are walking down memory lane. 1. ANNIVERSARY: Our team has grown and changed somewhat over the last two years. As has the app: We first started with one tool: Clouds (back in the fall of 2016). Then added the option of sky color and more to Clouds in March 2017. Then came Mosquito Habitat Mapper in the spring of 2017. Recently, The GLOBE Program and the GLOBE Observer app have joined with the Department of State to help in the fight against zika with the GLOBE Zika Education and Prevention Project. This project is on going, but already has trained many in mosquito-disease-prone countries.  >>

The summer is just flying by. And it has been a hot one for many parts of the world. Fires, clouds and more in this week's edition of the roundup. 1. CALIFORNIA FIRES: Fires are blazing in California and causing large clouds: "The heat generated by intense wildfires can churn up towering pyrocumulus and pyrocumulonimbus clouds, which lift smoke above the boundary layer, the lowest part of the atmosphere. “The hotter a fire burns, the higher up smoke can go, and the farther it can spread,” explained Amber Soja, an atmospheric scientist with the National Institute of Aerospace who is based at NASA’s Langley Research Center."  >>

IMAGE OF THE WEEK: Check out these interesting looking clouds and the color within. They are call "Glories." "If you have ever seen a series of concentric rings of color near a mist or fog, you have likely seen a glory.
