Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment
Service Provider DescriptionGlobal 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.
