GLOBE eTraining provides the opportunity for new and existing GLOBE users to complete science protocol training at anytime, anywhere.
GLOBE projects provide student research experiences to explore and learn about Earth through a network of students, teachers, and scientists.
The Geosphere is associated with solid portions of the Earth. It includes the continental and oceanic crust and all other layers of the Earth's interior. This includes all rocks, sediments and soils, surface landforms and the processes that shape the Earth's surface.
Please consider using this graphic organizer to help students analyze the processes and components of Earth System phenomena.
Check out these learning activities to help prepare students for collecting data and support the integration of MND with GLOBE in your curriculum.
There are many activities and protocols in GLOBE that support learning about Earth's changes in land surface and use. Please note: My NASA Data Geosphere phenomena relate closely to GLOBE Pedosphe
Learn how Landsat data are used to detect changes in land use. This video describes how the data are interpreted and gives examples of changes in forests from different insects and differences due to land management.
This USGS activity leads students to an understanding of what remote sensing means and how researchers use it to study changes to the Earth’s surface, such as deforestation.
