GLOBE Webinar – NASA SMAP Mission - how your students can help
2 December 2021
NASA’s Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) Mission is just one of the ways scientists are collecting important soil moisture data from space. NASA need your help in ground truthing the data collected from space using the measurements your students can make here on Earth
Join this CSIRO Education and Outreach 30 minute webinar to see how you and your students can help improve our understanding of the Earth systems.
Trees Around the GLOBE Campaign
With participants from over fifty countries, and running from October 2021 to September 2022, you can start collecting data and contributing to this campaign today. Along with tree height measurements, the campaign will focus on using multiple data collection protocols to complement the tree height measurements. This allows for a more complete insight into why trees play such an important role in our ecosystem.
The GLOBE program provides grade level-appropriate, interdisciplinary activities and investigations about four of the Earth's spheres, the atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and soil/pedosphere, which have been developed by the scientific community and validated by teachers.
GLOBE connects students, teachers, scientists, and citizens from different parts of the world to conduct real, hands-on science about their local environment and to put this in a global perspective.
GLOBE is sponsored by the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and is delivered in Australia through a partnership between the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and the Australian Space Agency.
- 124 countries
