GLOBE Observer Connect: July 2023

Date: 07/13/2023 - 07/13/2023
Location: Virtual

Join us on 13 July at 8 pm ET (0:00 UTC on 14 July) for GLOBE Observer Connect, a monthly series of short conversations about GLOBE data, science, and the latest updates. Our topic for July is Fire in the Sky, presented by Samantha Borah, a graduate student at Sitting Bull College, and Marilé Colón Robles, GLOBE Clouds lead.

Recently, parts of the United States have been experiencing smoke plumes from wildfires in Canada causing air quality issues. Through the clouds tool, many have reported their observations and images of these events. But, the East Coast is not the only location that has been affected by wildfire smoke. Guest educator and scientist Samantha Borah will share her experience monitoring wildfire smoke and air quality with students near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North and South Dakota.
