Two recent peer-reviewed publications have featured GLOBE citizen science (GLOBE Observer) data. In the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, “Clouds Around the World: How a Simple Citizen Science Data Challenge Became a Worldwide Success” describes the overall quantity and type of data collected during the 2018 Spring Cloud Challenge, as well as satellite matches made (left, top image), and specific areas of interest such as over-the-ocean clouds observations in the Drake Passage and Saharan dust in the Canary Islands and Greece. https://doi.org/10.1175/BAMS-D-19-0295.1

On August 20, 2020 My NASA Data's Angela Rizzi delivered a presentation titled, “Beating the Back to School Blues with My NASA Data: Exploring Earth System Phenomena with My NASA Data Resources” to 24 educators through NASA Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Engagement & Educator Professional Development Collaborative at Kennedy Space Center.
Angela provided an overview of the variety of resources available in My NASA Data and identified how to locate, access, visualize, and download Earth data from the Earth System Data Explorer. She also presented strategies for engaging students with these data in support of data literacyDownload
Two years of the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign have passed. Over this time, there have been students and educators from over fifty countries participating in data collection for tree height, land cover, greenings, carbon cycle, among others. During the two years, there have been tens of thousands of data, submitted to the GLOBE database, that align to the campaign. Aligning to the campaign means that the students have collected data, analyzed their data, and developed student research projects, some for local science fairs, GLOBE US SRS, and the GLOBE IVSS. We also have lots of NASA GLOBE ObserverDownload
