Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment
Data Center Description
Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (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.
