The Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign, GLOBE European Phenology Campaign, UNEP/GRID-Warsaw Centre (coordinator of GLOBE Poland), and the Urban Heat Island Effect - Surface Temperature Field Program, would like to invite you to participate in the Spring 2022 GLOBE Tree Height and Land Cover Intensive Observation Period (IOP), happening now, from 22 April through 22 May 2022. Everyone, from students to educators to citizen scientists can participate in the IOP by collecting Tree Height and Land Cover observations, using the traditional GLOBE protocol observations and/or the NASA GLOBE Observer App. Your observations will add significantly to the GLOBE database and provide vital data for GLOBE student researchers, as well as professional researchers, looking for tree height and land cover data from around the world.
This Spring 2022 IOP is part of the 4th year of the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign and aligns to the 2022 European Phenology Spring Green Up Campaign, the 25th anniversary of GLOBE Poland, and the 50th anniversary of the United Nations Environmental Program. The IOP also parallels the 50th anniversary of the NASA-USGS Landsat Program, with its 50 years of remote sensing Earth observations, as well as several NASA missions such as ICESat-2, GEDI, and GPM.
Will you join us in celebrating these milestones by taking vital tree height and land cover observations that will benefit global science research and provide important ground-based data for student and professional researchers?
