Bridging Observations from Space and Ground: Citizen Science's Role in Monitoring Alaska's River Ice
In Alaska, volunteers under programs like Fresh Eyes on Ice and The GLOBE Program collect critical data that feeds into larger research frameworks. By combining multi-satellite imagery and ground-level observations, scientists can observe and analyze ice conditions with unprecedented detail and accuracy.  >>

GLOBE Observer Connect Recordings
We are not holding a GLOBE Observer Connect for July 2024, but we encourage you to take the opportunity to view available recordings of the prior sessions.  >>

GLOBE Goes to Sea
One look at GLOBE Clouds data reveals that volunteers have been bringing GLOBE to sea. In honor of world ocean month, we explore some of the observations they've submitted and the science they enable. Photo courtesy Allison Cusick.  >>

Talking to Scientists about Trees and Land Cover Research, Technology, and Citizen Science for Understanding our Planet
Interviews with research scientists Dr. Bruce Cook and Dr. Sorin Popescu focused on research vision, research questions, and how the planning of research sets the baseline for developing a research project.  >>

Results from the GLOBE Eclipse Challenge: Clouds and Our Solar-Powered Earth
Between 15 March and 15 April, volunteers from over 90 countries collected more than 23,000 GLOBE Clouds observations, generating 25,444 satellite matches. Volunteers in the United States submitted 13,900+ cloud observations, making it the most active country in the challenge. Saudi Arabia, Croatia, Israel, Mexico, and Thailand were the next most active countries.  >>

Abandoned Backyard Pools Pose Mosquito Risks
Mitigation of standing water is an important action to protect communities from mosquito bites and the pathogens they carry.  >>

GLOBE Eclipse in the News!
GLOBE Eclipse has been featured in a few news articles and broadcasts recently - check out where we've been mentioned!  >>

Eclipse Tool Now in GLOBE Observer
The GLOBE Eclipse tool is now available in the GLOBE Observer app. If you live in an area that will experience the 8 April solar eclipse, the Eclipse tool is now visible to you.  >>

Supporting GLOBE Student Investigations of the Eclipse
During the eclipse, as the moon comes between us and the Sun, we will experience a sudden change in the amount of Sun’s energy reaching our surface. This can cause changes in our atmosphere including changes in air temperature, surface temperature, clouds, and wind. This can make for interesting GLOBE student research!  >>

Earn Badges and Set Streaks while Using the GLOBE Observer App
To help you keep track of your contributions to GLOBE and to show our appreciation for you, we have added a new My Achievements section to the GLOBE Observer app. This new feature shows milestone badges and streaks for all data you have submitted to GLOBE.  >>
