Summary:To contribute to NASA's studies of our home planet, all you need is a smartphone, access to the outdoors, and the Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Observer app. Using the app -- which is available for both iOS and Android platforms -- students of all ages can become citizen scientists participating in the GLOBE program. By submitting regular observations, students are helping scientists track changes in clouds, water, and plants and other life in support of climate research. Scientists use the submitted data from citizen scientists to verify NASA satellite data. The app includes tutorials on how to collect data as well as additional information on observation techniques, clouds, and more.
