GLOBE Observer Connect: January 2024
Student research is an important aspect of The GLOBE Program, and a number of GLOBE-related student posters were presented at the recent American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, especially by high school interns through the NASA STEM Enhancement in Earth Systems (SEES) program, for which several GLOBE Observer team members served as mentors. In our monthly GLOBE Observer Connect session, you will have the opportunity to listen to some of those students describe their projects and be able ask them questions about using GLOBE citizen science data in their research. Visit our news article on the topic for a broader description of the GLOBE Program's participation at AGU.
Students who will be presenting their work during the webinar session:
- "Analyzing the Correlation between Terrain and the Characteristics of Wildfires," Trisha Gorusu, NASA SEES Internship (presenting); Katherine Bittle, NASA SEES Internship; Dafne Rodriguez, NASA SEES Internship; Renee Easterbrook, NASA SEES Internship
- "On the Statistical Significance of Local Land Cover Measurements: A Comparative Analysis of Citizen Science and Remote Sensing Programs," Aidan P Schneider, NASA SEES Internship (presenting)
- "Uniting Machine Learning and Citizen Science for Automatic Land Cover Classification," Riya Tyagi, NASA SEES Internship (presenting); Roayba Adhi, NASA SEES Internship; Oseremen Ojiefoh, NASA SEES Internship (presenting); Kavya Ram, NASA SEES Internship; Haitham Ahmad, NASA SEES Internship; Lavanya Gnanakumar, NASA SEES Internship
The above projects were conducted by 2023 SEES Earth System Explorer intern science teams, who were mentored by the following GLOBE Observer and NASA team members: Dr. Rusty Low, Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES); Peder Nelson, Oregon State University; Cassie Soeffing, IGES; Andrew Clark, IGES; and Dr. Erika Podest, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
