Trees Around the GLOBE Campaign

The Trees Around the GLOBE Campaign commenced on September 15, 2018 in conjunction with NASA's ICESat-2 launch on the same date at 6:02 am PDT. This campaign is a student research campaign focusing on tree height - one of the measurements conducted by the ICESat-2 mission.

Guiding Investigative Questions for Data Collection and Research

As you take tree height and other measurements as part of the campaign, we would like to offer several questions that you might like to answer. These Guiding Investigative Questions can help you with the "Why am I collecting this data and what does my data mean?

  • Where are trees growing and why are they there?
  • What can measuring tree height tell us about our local ecosystem?
  • What is the relationship between tree height and land cover?
  • What are the tools for measuring trees and the errors between them?
