What is Globe?
The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program is a worldwide hands-on, primary- and secondary-school-based science and education program focusing on the environment, now active in 112 countries world-wide. Announced by the U.S. Government on Earth Day in 1994, GLOBE launched its worldwide implementation in 1995. It works to promote the teaching and learning of science, enhance environmental literacy and stewardship, and promote scientific discovery. Students and teachers collect data and perform research in collaboration with scientists from numerous international agencies, and their work is made accessible though the GLOBE website.
What do you do in Globe?
You get a globe paper and fill out all the information that applies to the area you are in. The purpose of Globe said from NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, “GLOBE provides students and the public worldwide with the opportunity to contribute meaningfully to our understanding of the global environment and climate. The program not only engages students in learning about their local environment, it also empowers them to play an active role in adding to global data about our home planet.”
Cloud Coverage and Types of Clouds
If you would like to see the different types of cloud types and cloud coverage then check out my other spark page for it.
What time do you have to do Globe?
You do Globe when the sun is around its highest temperature. Which around 12:00 p.m. Usually my class do it after we eat lunch which is 12:30 p.m. But when you go to Globe at a certain time. You have to put it in universal time. Universal time is where the prime meridian is so that means Greenwhich London is the time you have to put down. Since I live in Florida if I went to do Globe at 12:32 p.m. then it would be 5:32 p.m. Then the last step is it turn it into military time 1732.
