What Greens Up, Must Green Down: Greenings Live from Switzerland.

GLOBE Master Trainer, Markus Eugster, and his students from the Sekundarschule Uzwil in Switzerland have been conducting Greenings (Green-Up and Green-Down) research during their tree investigations. Monitoring the the beginning and ending of the growing season of trees helps scientists track plant growing seasons. One way to track the change is through a Swiss GLOBE program called PhenoCam, a way to use automated cameras...
