GLOBE Website Upgrade
The website’s upgrade transition period is planned for 12 November through 16 November. During this period, sign in to the site will be turned off, and as such, users will not be able to add data. For the GLOBE Observer app, users will not be able to submit data within the app. However, users will still be able to make and store observations on the app to be uploaded to the site at a later time (after the upgrade is complete).  >>
