The NASA IV&V ERC has GLOBE Trainers who conduct "kit" workshops associated with GLOBE protocols that you may Loan & Learn with your classes! Additionally, there are 4 protocols that require limited equipment to complete and are available on the GLOBE Observer App
GLOBE Observer, the app of The GLOBE Program, invites you to make environmental observations that complement NASA satellite observations to help scientists studying Earth and the global environment. Those in the 120+ GLOBE countries can download and use the app.
We need your help! For unknown reasons, fireflies, also known as lightning bugs, have been declining across their range. Almost every West Virginian child recalls seeing the majestic flashing displays of fireflies growing up. Amazingly, there are MANY species of fireflies, each with their own unique flashing patterns. We likely have somewhere between 23-41 firefly species, with each male species having its own unique flash (the females are rarely seen). A formal assessment of fireflies has never been done in our state- this is where you come in!
CrowdMag is going active! When you go out for a walk, run, or other outdoor activities, use CrowdMag to measure the magnetic data along your path and save the data as a “magtivity”. Save, list, export or delete magtivities to create a complete magnetic field map of your area. We especially encourage you to share your magtivities with our research group at NOAA and to have multiple magtivities along the same path so that we can stack the data to reduce the noise and produce a more accurate magnetic field map.
