|Message of The Month:|
NASA scientists are very interested in learning how clouds affect our atmosphere. It is the clouds, in part, that affect the overall temperature and energy balance of the Earth. The more we know about clouds, the more we will know about our Earth as a system. And YOU can help by sending NASA your observations!
NASA Students' Cloud Observations On-Line Project (S'COOL) has joined forces with the Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program creating a larger community of cloud observers.
If you are new to GLOBE, learn how to participate in the NASA GLOBE Cloud Observation Project. Citizen Science Observations can be submitted through the GLOBE Observer app. By using the GLOBE Observer app, you are joining the GLOBE community and contributing important scientific data to NASA and GLOBE, your local community, and students and scientists worldwide. Teachers may wish to become a GLOBE Certified teachers by participating in online eTraining.
The S'COOL Citizen Science option continues to be available if you are not able to submit cloud observations through GLOBE.
The buttons to the right will walk you through each participation step! We welcome participation from any interested observers, especially from places where official weather observations are few and far between.
