GLOBE Observer invites you to make environmental observations that complement NASA satellite observations to help scientists studying Earth and the global environment. Version 1.1 includes GLOBE Clouds, which allows you to photograph clouds and record sky observations and compare them with NASA satellite images. GLOBE is now the major source of human observations of clouds, which provide more information than automated systems.
Future versions of GLOBE Observer will add additional tools for you to use as a citizen environmental scientist.
By using the GLOBE Observer app, you are joining the GLOBE community and contributing important scientific data to NASA and GLOBE, your local community, and students and scientists worldwide.
New and interested users are encouraged to go to http://www.globe.gov to learn more about the GLOBE program, or learn more about the GLOBE Clouds protocol. A one page summary of GLOBE Observer is available too.
