Check out the new NASA “GLOBE Observer” app, available in the Apple App Store and on Google Play for Android devices. I just downloaded and will try myself. You can learn more about NASA’s GLOBE program here.
Below is an excerpt from Dr. Trena Ferrell’s email advertising a talk at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center on 20 Sept. 2016 by Holli Riebeek Kohl, a NASA education and communication specialist in the Earth Science Division at NASA Goddard since 2003.
With the new GLOBE Observer app, everyone around the world can contribute meaningfully to NASA Earth Science missions…The inaugural “GLOBE Clouds” content allows users to collect data that helps scientists interpret satellite observations of clouds—a critical observation for understanding climate and climate change…Upcoming projects will have citizen scientists assisting with the monitoring of land cover and mosquito populations, and the GLOBE Observer team is looking for science advisors to provide input.
If you download the app and use it, perhaps you can add a comment in response to this post describing your experience.
The era of citizen science is arriving!
