Title: Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Data Available on the WWW
Description:
Abstract:
GLOBE is a worldwide network of students, teachers and scientists working together to study and understand the global environment. Students (K-12) conduct and array of measurements and observations at their schools and share their data via the Internet with other students and scientists around the world. Teachers instruct students on how to take measurements, and help students understand the relevance of their observations. Scientists analyze the data in conjunction with information obtained from other sources (e.g. satellites and models) to help develop a better understanding of Earth systems. Data are available via for download in tabular form (ASCII), as shapefiles, and as rendered maps via a Web Mapping Service (WMS). The data include: Atmosphere - Clouds and Contrails - Aerosols - Water Vapor - Barometric Pressure - Relative Humidity - Precipitation (Rain, Snow, Snowpack, pH) - Max/Min/Current Air Temperature - Surface Temperature - Surface Ozone Hydrology - Water Transparency - Water Temperature - Dissolved Oxygen - Electrical Conductivity - Salinity - pH - Alkalinity - Nitrate - Freshwater Macroinvertebrates Soil - Soil Characterization - Soil Temperature - Gravimetric Soil Moisture - Bulk Density - Soil Particle Density - Soil Particle Size Distribution - Soil pH - Soil Fertility - Soil Moisture - Infiltration Land Cover/Biology - Land Cover - Biometry - Manual Land Cover Mapping - Computerized MultiSpec Land Cover Mapping - Land Cover Change Detection - Fire Fuel Phenology - Budburst - Green-Up - Green-Down - Ruby-throated Hummingbird - Phenological Gardens - Lilac Phenology - Arctic Bird Migration Monitoring - Seaweed Reproductive Phenology More information about GLOBE can be found on the WWW at: "http://www.globe.gov" GLOBE data access is available online: "http://viz.globe.gov/viz-bin/access.cgi" GLOBE data visualizations are available at: "http://viz.globe.gov/viz-bin/home.cgi" GLOBE WMS is available at: "http://viz.globe.gov/viz-bin/wmt.cgi?" UCAR and Colorado State University manage the GLOBE Program under a cooperative agreement with NASA, with support from the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of State.
