We received over 80,000 air temperature measurements and nearly 20,000 clouds observations from more than 10,000 observers! While our team is working on analyzing the data, we also encourage citizen scientists of all ages to try their hand at doing their own analysis. Go to our data analysis page for example graphs and tips and tricks for accessing the data.
Welcome to GLOBE Observer, an international citizen science initiative to understand our global environment. Your observations help scientists track changes in clouds, water, plants, and other life in support of climate research. Scientists also use your data to verify NASA satellite data. And by submitting your observations, you can help students of all ages do real scientific research as part of the GLOBE Program. To participate, just download the app, go outside and follow the prompts in the app to observe your environment.
You can become a GLOBE Observer. Just download the GLOBE Observer app and use it to observe the environment wherever you are.
We will invite a few of the most active GLOBE Observers to join our volunteer leadership team for behind-the-scenes conversations with scientists, as well as community leadership opportunities. Interested in joining the leadership team? Contact us.
Observations are most helpful if taken when a NASA satellite is overhead. Select "check satellite flyovers" or click on the satellite icon in the app.
